The complete series 1 and 2 of the BBC historical drama series based on the autobiographical books by Flora Thompson, set in the small market town of Candleford in the 19th century and starring Julia Sawalha, Olivia Hallinan, Brendan Coyle and Dawn French. When the birth of a new baby brings financial pressure to bear on the Timmins household, eldest daughter Laura (Hallinan) leaves the village of Lark Rise to begin work as an apprentice to her cousin, Dorcas Lane (Sawalha), the postmistress of the neighbouring market town of Candleford. Laura and Dorcas soon become close friends and together they witness and experience the lives, loves and laughter of this now-vanished corner of rural England.
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.See all Product description
