Having just visited Britain for the first time a few weeks ago, I thought that this was quite a "charming" movie. Surely, oh-so-critical-previous-reviewer, it wasn't THAT bad, was it???? The scenery was wonderful, the manor house was spectacular, the people looked a lot more "real" than both the men AND women in that dreadful piece of British crap "Footballer's Wives". The plot was not that original, the acting - well, not a lot of acting was required, was it???? Especially given that modern standards wouldn't allow a great deal of "realism" in the more "dramatic" scenes (can't be any more explicit without giving away the punchlines).
All in all, I thought it a fairly pleasant and innocuous mini-series, easy on the eye and the brain. Is it so wrong to not expect any more for something shown at 1 am?
