A 1950s set, British drama series about life in the fictional Lancashire village of Ormston. The main focus of the series was the two doctors, father and son, who run the cottage hospital under the new National Health Service.
David Jason said he would never have been cast as Pop Larkin if it hadn't been for appearing in A Bit of a Do (1989) first, because it put him on Yorkshire Television's radar; that subsequently led to him being cast in A Touch of Frost (1992). See more »
I purchased the whole series "The Darling Buds of May" a few years ago and then watched the whole series within a few days. I grew up in the UK in the early sixties and this series reminded me so much of what life was like in England when I was growing up.
It is the best and purest form of escapism it fills one with a sense of longing for how life once was. The scenery, the lifestyle, the family and of course the farm are just "perfec" my favorite episode is the one called "Christmas is coming" (series 1 episode 7).
Even now, years later, I still find myself humming the opening theme song. It is one of the best feel good series that I have ever seen and the characters are so well played.
If you haven't seen the series do yourself a very big favour and go out and buy, borrow or steal it and then sit back and be prepared to be taken back to a time, long before laptops, iPhones, mobile phones and emails, where life was simple and almost idyllic.
