The Mallens (all 4 of them)
These are an excellent production. All the acting is absolutely first class. By the 3rd one The Mallen Secret you are really introduced to young Barbara who is also deaf which means that even in the 70's when this was first made (I remember it well I was a teenager at the time and it was my first introduction to Catherine Cookson visually rather than literally) there was continuous sign language throughout by not just one but a number of the actors and actresses involved. I thought then and now that that is no mean feat when you are also acting and have speaking parts as well. It also opened up the sign language barriers to people who probably have never had to deal with this before, I certainly hadn't then but I do now.

If you have never read the Mallens then watch this, be entertained and be very impressed by excellent acting by all concerned. If you HAVE read the Mallens, watch it and enjoy but think of it as a completely different story because if you are expecting the books on film you will be very disappointed. This has a totally different ending and a great deal sooner than Catherine's Mallen trilogy. In the TV adaptation young Barbara Mallen to me is portrayed as a selfish but very sad young woman who is doomed to never marry her cousin Michael Radlett. This is her cousin and her farmer lover, the man she loves and who loves her but because she is lied to the tragedy comes from the fact that when she learns the truth it is too late for both of them. It is a real Capulet and Montague ending!

Musically it is beautiful. The music is by Alexander Borodin and it is very deep and very powerful. The aerial shots of the lovely north eastern coutryside also move me deeply. I LOVE Catherine Cookson.

Bought these as a present for my friend. She was delighted. Although we both have seen them all they are still very much worth watching again and again.

I was disappointed to receive a duplicate of Secrets and Lies - The Secret 2 which left me with 7 DVD instead of 8.I trust you will be able to replace this for me. I will send the duplicate back if you wish. However I enjoyed them.
I love them and would order more but it has not been clear which DVDs are in the packages.

Bought this 'used' dvd set, not expecting it to be in such fantastic condition. I think this seller described it as used once, and it was like new. The new version was just too expensive. Well worth the money. Came well packaged and arrived promptly.

I was very pleased with this Catherine Cookson DVD, I have seen most of them before but I find they are something you can watch again and again, and I enjoy them that much that I have ordered another Catherine Cookson box set.
