It was nice to see the old farm again and Dr Gordon and Jenny. I like the way they now have a Vicky again as that was the original girl's name played by Judi Bowker and then followed by Jenny played by Stacy Dorning. The settings, clothes etc are all excellent. I felt though it was catering to a modern audience. A feeling of it being set in another era with today's views.
