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.
This scary thing posing as a comedy is cringe worthy! The parts were she speaks into camera are sad, her acting is wooden and i don't see whats funny about a woman being insecure about her looks and weight. This story line "i'm at a certain age, think i'm fat and i go out with losers so i can feel good about myself, then collapse hopelessly when it goes wrong after 2 weeks seems to be the in thing. It was not that funny when Bridgit Jones did it and being rehashed endlessly doesn't make it any more easy to bear. I beg you all don't watch so there's no chance of it raising again and coming back to haunt us. Instead they should brings back classic's such as the Two Ronnies etc... comedy's that are not all smart arse, PC crud that we are sadly churning out today.
