Brain candy but what the hell?,
This review is from: The Catherine Cookson Collection: 23 Feature Length Adaptations [24 DVDs] (DVD)
Some of these productions are a tad dated, which is to be expected, but they are universally surprisingly good. I'm no Catherine Cookson fan (having part-read just one of her books) but, because I come from the north-east of England, they have a certain interest. Value cannot be faulted and the sound and video quality are spot-on. Nice to see the likes of Sean Bean (looking about twelve) earning his pre-stardom bread.
I've only given this collection four stars because CC's stories are invariably depressing (although usually with a slightly less-depressing ending) and, if I awarded it five stars, people would perhaps think my enjoyment of them was weird.
