Please help me- I want to buy a copy of this series!!
28 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

I have been longing to obtain a copy of this series 'Diana' in video for years, ever since I first saw it on BBC TV and loved it SO Much. Please can someone help me to get hold of a copy. I would go to the ends of the earth to find it. Since watching it and loving it so much I have read and re read the book many times. Jenny Seagrove was wonderful as Diana, and Kevin McNally- well- his portrayal of Jan left me weeping buckets.

The descriptions of Devon were so exactly as I found it when visiting that area, and the portrayed role of the Special Operations in France made me so grateful to be British. The character of Jan was so well portrayed as being the character in 'Lorna Doone' and Lorna's Jan Ridd really came to life as the young man who fell in love on that October day when in his teens, he knew there would never be another girl for him. Wonderfully acted and superbly portrayed. The most wonderful moving story I have ever watched on TV (and there have been many) If someone reads this and can help me to get a copy I will love them forever!! Gillian Humphries.
