Bring this little gem Back!!
31 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Truly great series and lovely concept! Alderton and Collins were surely the greatest on screen actual man and wife pairing since Burton and Taylor. To that end,they convey so well in this,an escape to the rural idyll that so many of us urbanites desperately seek. A genuine life worth living. Beyond the mundane Rat Race and grind in which most of us today just survive in. This, along with certain other great series which also aired through the 80s and 90's, such as 'The Darling buds of May' and 'Lovejoy', certainly helped form what was a Golden age of family TV! All of these series superbly cast and equally well written. Overflowing with buckets of charm and sentimental nostalgia. Nowadays,certainly in my opinion at least, all totally deserving of a revamp and resurrection into Britains telly wasteland! Great stuff!!
