In the 1840s, Cranford is ruled by the ladies. They adore good gossip; and romance and change is in the air, as the unwelcome grasp of the Industrial Revolution rapidly approaches their beloved rural market-town.
Sports reporter (and widower/single-dad) Stuart Morrison's paper is in financial trouble, and hotshot businesswoman Cara Rossi's been assigned to make it profitable. Cara, eager to escape London after a disastrous affair with her boss, is still reluctant to take the assignment, as she left Glasgow for greener pastures and would once again be in the bosom of her overbearing Italian family. When she and Stuart meet, have a one-night stand, part, and then meet again in their business personas, will the relationship last and flower? Or will Cara's business plan and Stuart's memories of his wife, Siobhan, keep them apart? Written by
This show was delightful and so full of a sense of "place"
I watched this on the BBC channel here in the states, and I was utterly enchanted. I have been to Scotland, and I felt like they captured that feeling really well. I just recently discovered the actress I loved, Sharon Small, is the lead in the mystery series, The Inspector Lynley Mysteries. So I'm quite happy to watch her in all those! I thought they cast the entire thing wonderfully. I wanted to see more of these people and their lives.
I was very sad when this ended and I went online and discovered they had no plan to continue the series. I will buy it if it ever comes out on DVD.
