Trivia

In her autobiography, Jennifer Saunders writes about coming up with the series. She was frustrated that the only depictions of country life on television consisted of extremely posh upper class people and extremely dim dirty people and nothing inbetween. She also writes she was largely inspired by the movie 'Calendar Girls'. See more »

Extremely misunderstood and mispromoted!
15 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think that this show has been very good for the first three episodes. It is nothing like Jennifer Saunders's previous comedies and so lots of people seem to be disappointed by it. The BBC promoted too much as a comedy and gave it a slot normally reserved for more obvious comedies. I would call it more of a comedy drama which would have been much more appropriate on a Sunday evening. I think when watching this show, you should expect gentle comedy which feels very warm, not the non-stop laughs of Absolutely Fabulous and then you won't be disappointed. All the actors give great performances, with Dawn French and Joanna Lumley providing most of the comic relief from most of the story lines, some of which are actually quite serious at times. Shows should never be judged on their pilot episodes and this is the perfect example - it was just setting the scene and creating openings for future story lines. I personally can't wait to see how all the characters develop over time and hope it is given the chance it deserves to grow into a lovely cosy drama. People are often too quick to judge, and with this show they absolutely mustn't.
