This review is from: To Serve Them All My Days - Parts 1, 2 and 3  [DVD] (DVD)
It really does not seem like Twenty four years since this adaptation of To Serve Them all my days was aired. This is a timeless piece of drama based upon the book of the same title by R.F.Delderfield. It follows the life of David Powlett- Jones ,a young soldier who returns shell shocked and emotionally vulnerable from the trenches of the Somme at the end of the Great war. On his return he finds himself a school master at an English public school. The beauty of this story and of the dramatisation is we watch him grow and develop into a wonderful man helped through his life by his devotion to his work. We share the highs and the lows of his life and we share in the relationships he forms over the years. This series is as good now as it was over twenty years ago. It has been transferred to dvd well. The acting is superb. It is an absolute must for anyone who watched it fisrt time round and for those of you who appreciate good strong costume drama .
