A 70's reworking of the Canterbury tales
2 October 2003 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

Its not been shown for years, even with satellite TV's penchant for repeats, the Canterbury tales reset as a collection of misfits head for Wembley & the rugby league cup final. The years have dimmed my memory but I thoroughly enjoyed this series, probably Bill Maynard's most watchable work. Yet another gem by Alan Plater.
