The characters, the costumes and the countryside are just a symphony of what one would expect of life in England in the early 20th. century. I was hooked after the first thirty seconds, truly I encourage you to click on the link and watch this series on-line, it is well worth the time. PBS ran this in January and hopefully will run it again prior to introducing the second series. If you enjoy the production you can also purchase it on Amazon for $16.99. I'm going to purchase three or four copies for gifts for friends and families, and of course one for myself. I did see at the end of the last episode that they do plan to continue with more. The English version which contains seven episodes is available on Amazon also but my understanding is you need to have a DVD formatted for the United Kingdom.
So if you find yourself snowed in on Wednesday, settle in near the fireplace and enjoy.
