Great viewing, 24 Aug. 2013
I really enjoyed the series, the characters were excellent and the storyline fascinating - with historical depth. Even, though there are no war scenes the series gives you a real appreciation for how World I affected the lives of ordinary people. Another reviewer has likened the series to Downtown Abbey. I enjoyed The Village more than Downtown as Downtown's characters focus on the rich and privileged. The Village focuses on ordinary folk trying to live their lives through an extraordinary period in history.
