He's very clear-eyed about the political types: from the nasty right-wing on-the-make Tories to hypocritical champagne socialists, socialists who are more concerned with world problems than the concerns of their own families, one-nation interfering do-gooders. He's most sympthetic to those characters who try to live decent lives without noisily shouting about their political values, and on the whole, the women come out of it better than the men.
The character of Leslie Titmuss is extraordinary, a real gift to an actor and David Threlfal seizes it with both hands
It's beautifully directed,designed/produced,: oh, the spacious days of quality television, where good series were allowed to flourish with long runs, character development , high production values.
It's only slightly dated (writing 30 yearsd on) : enjoy this, and find out what really went on in England's green and pleasant land.
Delighted with the price and speedy delivery.
As I am interested in the period 1960 onwards, it was a wonderful recollection of those
days so true to all the details. Acting is excellent and the story line unusual.
The deference shown to the Lord and Lady of the Manor, would not happen today.
Loved the actress who played the Mother of the Conservative Minister, who had herself
"Been in Service". I was sorry when I had come to the end of the 6 disc set.
The acting quality is second to none.
I wish I could obtain the sequel series in the UK.
Stretched over 11 episodes the action flits between flashbacks and the present day. We see the vicars sons, the young Titmuss, the daughter of the local doctor and daughter of the big house Charlotte (Zoe Wannamaker) as children and teenagers, in a series of schooldays, young adulthood and maturity. Yet somehow the flashbacks fail to add much to the story. Some are bordering on the ridiculous. Charlotte's wealthy father uses his Stately Home grounds to host a 60's music festival which is apparently a great success - despite being attended by about 30 people. Sadly, the decision to have the main actors play their younger selves leads to people clearly in their 40's trying to be hippies. It is laughably awful.
I stuck with this from episode 1 - which sees the death of Simeon and the revelation of his Will, as well as young Titmuss being bullied and ridiculed by Peter and his friends as he strives to rise form his working class, humble background - up to episode 7. Then I simply watched the finale.Read more ›
I can't wait to see the rest of the series and then move on to Titmuss Regained (but I don't want to rush it).
