The ultimate story of families, love, and growth within a small British community. Sisters-in-law Peggy Snow and Ruth Goddard deal with life's trials and tribulations realistically, very much like the rest of us, in this heart-warming British TV series. Written by
I live in the US and have been streaming this wonderful series through the Acorn channel. I'll be finishing Series 8 tonight. Unfortunately, Seasons 9 and 10 aren't available yet...but, something to look forward to.
WTHI is what I call a slice of life show--it's really about the daily lives of the people of Skelthwaite. They look and act like real people. This is so refreshing compared to the (too) high gloss of most American shows (which I almost never watch). I admit it's a little disconcerting when main characters go away (ta, Peg and Vic, Ruth and Simon), although I have to admit I don't miss a few who've gone (Karen, the male nurse whose name I can't even remember).
Try this, you'll like it. And, if you're from the US, you might want to consider watching with subtitles until you get the hang of the Yorkshire accent -- it's summat different from what we're used to hearing.
Other reviews also mentioned the fantastic show Ballykissangel -- I highly recommend that one as well. Also, although a period piece, From Lark Rise to Candleford is equally wonderful in its not-modern setting.
