Hugely influential, surreal and anarchic parody of the variety show format. Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer introduce a selection of eccentric characters. The show often appears to be completely random, ramshackle and nonsensical.
The novel was written in 1957, and Yorkshire Television wanted David Jason to play Pop Larkin. He had never read the book so he went away and did so before accepting the part, and pronounced it a charming read, as well as lovely, but not much happened and didn't go anywhere. But the characters were strong, especially Pop Larkin, and he would be fun to play. Jason's only condition was to shoot the series on film, because he didn't want it to be a studio production. At least on film, it would look good, and have some quality about it, even if nothing happened. See more »
There's something very endearing about The Darling Buds of May. The bright English country side coupled with bright and life filled characters made this show very heart warming and easy to watch. I remember watching it with great interest as an adolescent and it's something that's stayed with me into my adulthood.
For it's time, The Darling Buds of May was showing a different side of British society. Although the Larkins weren't nessicarilly "wealthy" they were happy and they were very supportive as family. It's a breath of fresh air to watch such characters and the situations they get into.
I recommend watching this show, it's heartfelt, touching, the characters are very real and the scenery is breath taking.
