Ladies in Charge - The Complete Series [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Carol Royle
7 of 8 people found the following review helpful
This is a very 'quiet' series, presented in a rather quaint style, as if it's on stage theatre. It goes well with the stories told, and is a very entertaining series who you could easily invite your Great Aunt to watch with you over High Tea? The quick substitution of one of the main characters from the first story, was a surprise, but she settled quickly to her role, and the substitution was quickly forgotten.

Feminism sprang to life after the War and these women wield their power so cleverly and with a quiet word, that Miss Marple could have been happy to have been a visitor amongst them.
Prisoners' Wives: Series 2 [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Sally Carman
Having thoroughly enjoyed Series 1 we couldn't wait to get onto Series 2, but discovered the first disk would not work. Amazon UK was very quick to replace the disk and we watched it the day it arrived. With a couple of new wives in this series, it was a fascinating account of how people's lives can become so very messed up, so quickly, when their partner - or relative ends up in prison. More great stories, great acting, and we were really sorry when it finished. I'm not sure if there is going to be a Series 3 but if there is, I'd be one of the first to pre-order it!
