If only there was more
17 December 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Just viewed the DVDs. If ever one wants to see a series that makes one feel good at the end, hire these.

I wish I could own the series.

Catherine Zita Jones is absolutely one of the most beautiful British actresses out of UK, and also a good actress also.

I loved the context of the series. And Pop and Mum were great, never got married etc., and Mum a little heavy after giving birth to what 'seven kids' was a great cook etc.

I challenge anyone who watches this series not to feel hungry watching them all enjoy eating, even if they have to kill the goose etc.

A great British produced series, wish there were more!
