Lark Rise to Candleford, inspired by Flora Thompson’s classic novels, presents a love letter to a vanished corner of rural England and a heart-warming drama teeming with wit, gossip, intrigue and romance.
Lark Rise, a small hamlet gently holding on to the past and Candleford, its neighbouring market town bustling into the future, both have their own eccentric and beloved characters. And when young Laura Timmins leaves her parents in Lark Rise to work for Candleford’s post-mistress Dorcas Lane, these two worlds, with their rivalries and shared concerns, are brought dramatically and entertainingly together.
Over three series of this uplifting drama, we take these vivid characters to our hearts; delighting in their comic adventures, and fervently following their love affairs, feuds and struggles.

The BBCs costume drama juggernaut struck gold once more when it decided to tackle the work of Flora Thompson. And in adapting her books in the form of the television production Lark Rise To Candleford, it has brought another compelling piece of drama to the screen.
Lark Rise To Candleford is set at the end of the 19th century, and it follows the story of two communities in the midst of a developing Oxfordshire. One is a fast-growing market town, the other a sleepier, quieter place thats holding more onto the past. Centred on Laura, the eldest daughter in the Timmins house, as she leaves the quieter life for work in the market town, the stage is then set for a quality drama series.
All ten episodes are present and correct on the Lark Rise To Candleford DVD set, and theres a lot to enjoy. The cast, for instance, is simply terrific, with Julia Sawalha, Dawn French and Olivia Hallinan rightly taking plaudits. And the journey of their characters, along with those of the strong supporting cast, is simply wonderful television.
Mixing in humour, drama and the production values we seem to take for granted from the BBC, Lark Rise To Candleford really is quite a treat. And whats more, its proof positive that when it comes to television period drama, there really isnt anyway doing it better. Super stuff. --Jon Foster --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

The series was like a breath of fresh air - an escape from the never-ending diet of real-life violence and murder stories, and the dreaded cheap reality shows that seem to be all pervasive these days. I found myself so looking forward to it, I rearranged my social life so as not to miss it. This is real quality TV, and I only wish there was more of it. This is British drama at its best. Julia Sawalha was absolutely brilliant, as always, and the ladies' costumes were outstanding. I don't usually buy DVD's because I tend to not watch programmes more than once - but this is a classic and I will definitely be watching it again and again.
