This review is from: The Barchester Chronicles [DVD]  (DVD)
Whether or not you have read 'The Warden' and/or 'Barchester Towers', you will love this if you enjoy thoughtful, historical drama. 'The Warden' is rather more serious, focusing on the eponymous warden's dilemma of conscience over his stipend and the political machinations into which he is drawn. This is made all the more difficult for him when his daughter becomes romantically involved with his protagonist, John Bold.
'Barchester Towers' is set some years later and is one of the funniest of Trollope's writings, with some extraordinarily memorable characters manipulating and posturing for personal gain and power. This production, positively crammed with superlative performances, fully lives up to the author's masterful creativity. Thoroughly enjoyable!
