Product Description

Lilies follows the lives of 3 Catholic sisters as they come of age following the First World War.

From Amazon.co.uk

Set in the aftermath of the first World War, Lillies is a quality period drama that centres on the activities of the Moss family. It’s also, seemingly, a show that’s been brought to an end after just one compelling series.

Living in 1920s Liverpool, the Moss family consists of three girls--Iris, May and Ruby--and one boy, Billy. Trying to keep them in order is their father, following the death of their mother. The three girls, at the behest of their mother, are Catholics, and it’s they that Lillies concentrates the best of its time upon.

At times not an easy watch courtesy of a fairly uncompromising approach, Lillies is nonetheless a superior piece of drama, and one that’s brought together in this welcome and thoughtful three-DVD collection. Across the episodes of the series, the strength of family bond comes across as paramount, but there are still some bitter lows that the Moss’ have to tackle. And thanks to a talented cast, it’s rewarding to follow their antics and adventures.

It’d be a pity if, as it seems, the BBC don’t commission another series of Lillies, because there really is a lot to enjoy on the evidence of this debut season alone. If this, though, is to be it, then at least fans of the show, and those who missed it first time around, get a strong DVD set to enjoy. A consolation, certainly, but a good consolation nonetheless. --Jon Foster

I loved this series when I saw it first on TV. It is so well-written and acted, such a refreshing change to the usual dross. Both funny and moving, this was such a treat, and I cannot understand why the BBC has decided not to commission a second series. Shame on you. I wish I could give it more stars.

One of the best dramas to come out of the BBC since Pride & Prejudice! So beautifully written and true to life in post war Liverpool, Lilies emcompasses all the great elements that makes an excellent period drama - humour, tradgedy and compassion to name a few.

Audiences all over can relate the Moss family in their struggle to over come family tradgedy, scandal and financial contraints, remaining strong throughout by the love and support of one another.

A highly recommended drama!

I didn't think I would like this series, the only reasin I watched it was because I was grounded and had nothing better to do. So I was totally suprised when I fell totally in love with the moss sisters and was so entranced by the series that I stayed in on friday nights to watch it even when I was ungrounded. I brought this DVD and watched again, and I loved it just as much second time round.

The best drama the BBC has produced in years. The script and acting are of the highest quality. You fall in love with the Moss family, making you care for them. It's humour, drama and just wonderful storylines will completely addict you.

Excellent that it has been released on dvd, disgrace that there looks like no second series. I will just have to keep watching this and imagine who ends up with who!

I am so constantly amazed that British television can bring out such superior series. Lilies is such an example of the art of good television, and regardless of the period and storyline which may not be to everyone's taste, sit back and just be entertained by the sheer delight and attention to detail which seems so sadly lacking in many of the 'imported' series which abound on our screens these days. The only criticism I have, which seems to echo other reviews of Lilies is that a second series was not commissioned, almost certainly for financial reasons. Nevertheless, buy this package and you and your family will be entertained for a fraction of the cost of a visit to your local cinema, and the memory of Lilies will remain with you for many a year.

This is money well spent ! I watched the whole series on TV but I love the additions on the DVD. Superb acting, historically accurate and beautifully scripted. Once you've met the Moss family you'll never forget them !

This series is one of the most beautifully written and wonderfully acted programmes that the BBC have ever made. You just feel yourself falling in love with all the characters and being drawn into their lives.

I live in hope that the BBC change their minds and recommission a second series - shame on them for casting aside this wonderful programme!

Buy it now and fall under the spell of Lilies!

Lilies was aired by the BBC on a Friday night, which happens to be a night I spend on the computer and, anyway, Lilies surely wasn't quite my genre even though I do watch most drama. Having missed the TV showing and after much searching for a muse to take on holiday for late night viewing while my wife slumbered (tendancies to insomnia no - just a sleepy wife), I settled rather reluctantly on this series after reading the reviews. We went on a cruise to Grecian isles and I need say no more than my wife almost kicked me overboard because my nose spent too much time in my portable DVD player watching this damn series. Simply it is the best non Andrew Davies drama the BEEB has produced since Poldark in 1976. The story is simple but gripping in its characterisation with one never knowing quite which way each character will develop. The cancellation of series 2 probably for budget reasons is a travesty. DO NOT MISS THIS !
