Wait until Sept 2011 for the REAL version!,
This review is from: Love In A Cold Climate [DVD]   (DVD)
In 1980 Judi Dench starred in the only REAL version of the Mitford novel.
This version will(at long last) be available in Sept 2011.
As it is longer than the "condensed" more modern version it manages to stay truer to the novel.
Not only that but it has a MUCH better cast and direction.
So save you pennies and go for the Judi Dench set.

I couldn't disagree with you more. This newer version drops all the unnecessary, repetitive style of the original, and cuts to the chase without losing much at all. Everything here, except the interminable soap opera length of the earlier adaptation. And it's WAY better to look at.

Actually the opposite is true. This savagely reduced version, having for example cut several main characters including Davey, then suddenly wastes time with a music-only lorry scene, always a sure sign of directorial dithering.
