Sue Johnston is superb in this series... the glue that holds the whole thing together. Dawn French - endearing as always and Jennifer Saunders one liners were well timed and added nice touches to lighten some serious moments.
Well worth buying and sitting back and relaxing at home with. We found after we navigated the first episode or two we wanted to watch all the way through. For fans of French and Saunders this is a must, but also worth purchasing if you like a good well acted, well scripted comedy that also has a lot of heart.
The focus of this witty drama set in a Devon country town is the recently-widowed Sally, played by Sue Johnston. In the opening episode she tells her best friend Tip (Pauline McLynn) to kill her if she ever joins the local Women's Institute. Tip agrees, stating that not only will she kill her, she will also knit her a coffin. This gives an idea of the kind of humour that permeates this gentle but often wickedly-funny series.
Other highlights include Caroline, the equivalent of the lady-of-the-manor, played expertly by the writer of the series, Jennifer Saunders. Caroline lives in the manor house and her husband John (never seen) earns oodles of money in the City, but rather than play the character as somebody imperious, instead she carries a subtle naivety that sees her talk in all innocence about going dogging down by the river, cottaging in Norfolk, rimming, and having a spit-roast. Her son `Mikey' (again never seen) is a pop star, and so Caroline can express casual annoyance about Sting playing his lute and Trudy reading her poems.
It's not all comedy, though, as serious relationships have their ups and downs. The town's WI itself appears always to be on the edge of collapse: what would they do without the ever-resent Pauline to stand in at short notice because the lecturer they had booked was unable to make it?
Don't be put off by Dawn French's take on `Sybil', a woman with multiple personalities. Dawn French's character is fun but naïve Rosie; but under pressure she becomes the formidable and no-nonsense Margaret. There are hints that the origins of this transformation are due to some childhood trauma.Read more ›
I wish the BBC would commission another series as it was just what T.V needed, a cosy, unoffensive but fantastically funny programme
