Trouble at t'mill,

This review is from: Brass - The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
I used to love this series when it was on TV and am looking forward to seeing it again. It's a spot-on parody of "upstairs, downstairs" historical dramas (think Catherine Cookson, Lady Chatterley's Lover, Brideshead Revisited). There's much heaving of ample bosoms under worsted shawls as working-class heroine Agnes Fairchild and her improbably noble offspring get romantically involved with the filthy rich - and slightly deranged - Hardacres, headed by tyrannical mill-owner Bradley (Timothy West is great in this "baddie" role). A not very accurate but incredibly funny portrait of life Oop North in days gone by.
