My faith is restored.....
10 November 2014 | by nge-156-918547See all my reviews

My faith is restored that there is still at least one person out there who can not only write but direct such an intelligent, unique, and endearing piece of work

I don't know why but I was captured by the very first trailer that I saw and with much anticipation waited for the series to start...... and I was not disappointed.

It has been such a long time since I have felt so totally engaged with a television series on British TV. The fact that it was tucked away on BBC4 is likely to mean that it will be missed by many, but then again if it was shown on the more mainstream channels then many may miss the point.

Previous reviews have already mentioned the warmth and depth of the characters, the excellent writing and how you feel drawn into, and become part of, the world that has been created. But I want to add how stunning the filming has been throughout this series, with some of the shots being absolutely beautiful.

It feels like something very special happened in the production of this series and I feel privileged that I caught it on its first showing.

I only hope it gets the recognition it deserves........
