Cranford: Is a wonderful warm and inviting story about a small town called Cranford. A group of social single women who all believe that they have the answer to all the problems that a small town has. The town has a small secret that has them all worried about how it will affect them all. It all turns out well and there is a lovely ending to the story.
North & South: Is a very moving story about a daughter of a middle-class parson, Margaret Hale, as we see the many changes she must go through before she changes her attitude towards the mill owner. I love Elizabeth Gaskell's stories, they are so warm, intelligent, moving and always surprising the viewer.
Wives & Daughters: Is a moving story about a very loving daughter whose life changes when her father who is a widower is remarried. The stepmother and her daughter cause a huge amount of grief for the Molly and her father.
Molly's life takes on a new meaning when things are sorted out.
