It's gritty funny and really draws the viewer in acting is superb from all members of the cast .
No violence etc so you can sit and watch with your family without fear of anything inappropriate suddenly appearing on screen
The photography is superb and it's a joy to watch
Am limiting myself to one episode a day to make it last longer
Wonderful production, great scripts and superb performances
In short , loving it
I was hooked on it when it first came out, recorded all the series with Pauline Quirke and co. and play them constantly.
The scenery is fantastic, set in stunning rolling Devon hills, (silly thing is I live in those stunning rolling Devon hills!) the beautiful farmhouses, the believable story lines. excellent screenplay taken from the tales in the Faith Addis books, the use of all the RIGHT animals and above all the superb acting from Warren,(brilliant with 'those ruddy Jacobs sheep' Pauline,(cannot see her as anyone else but Faith Addis!) Toby, Ellie and Alexandria (and every one else!)
The music is equally superb and I have bought the soundtrack by Sheridan Tounge and am always plugged into it whilst walking the fields with the dog! makes me feel as if I am part of the film set!
I have only one complaint, why oh why isn't series 2 and 3 available on dvd my poor old recordings are way past there sell by date even though I rerecorded the old vhs tapes onto dvd!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BBC can you release them soon, I'm getting desperate! surly if you can release one series you can release the others?
This is definitely worth a buy for those who love the country life, or live in the city and dream of it - it will show you what it's like! Also, any Pauline Quirke fans will love it too!
BUY IT! You will not be disappointed.
