Brilliant drama
28 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Nobody does period drama better than the BBC and this one was no exception. It is hard to find any fault with it all, fantastically shot and all the actors (especially Judi Dench, who made me cry) were terrific. I am growing to love Elizabeth Gaskell on the TV, after the previous adaptations of Wives and Daughters and North and South comes Cranford. Such a change from all the Dickens and Austen series we usually get. What a terrific writer she was. This story in some way was less dramatic than the other two adaptations, almost like a kind of soap opera, full of wonderful women characters, with every actress perfectly cast and no-one scene stealing. All in all another triumph, more please!

Just watched the BAFTAs. Why didn't Cranford win?? It should have.
