Anna Bouverie has long served as a priest s wife, committed to his work and their family. But the endless rounds of community service and servility have worn away at her until she can barely feel or recognise herself. When her husband fails to gain a promotion to Archdeacon, the realisation that their poor and humble life will never change stretches her to breaking point. Tired of being a slave to the community and wishing to place her bright but bullied daughter in a fee-paying Catholic school, she takes a job in the local supermarket. As her sense of well-being rises, so the community and her husband seek to drag her back down to earth. Torn between her freedom and blind responsibility, and with the interest of more than one man to drive her on, Anna faces a crisis in faith in her marriage and what it means to be The Rector s Wife.

Lindsay Duncan is an extremely attractive woman with a velvety smooth voice that I could listen to all day and she is perfect in the role. You really feel for the woman she portrays and you are annoyed that when she reacts in a way that is very understandable in the circumstances she comes a cropper. Aint life unfair.
To be subjective for a while, this reviewer enjoyed this adaptation and, by and large, the performances of the cast. The general tenor and 'accumulative' depiction of the inner nature of the characters is achieved pretty well nigh on flawlessly. The rolling pastoral beauty of the southern Cotswolds is framed admirably (some of the filming was done aroun Witney, apparently) and Richard Harvey's subtile - non-intrusive and mellifluous 'background' soundtrack helps to secure a genuinely 'bucolic' presence, underpinning the action and the outworking of the plot.Read more ›

Extremely tedious. After watching the first 45 minutes I thought I'd rather watch some paint dry. Two dimensional characters.Published 17 months ago by Mr. R. E. Wilkinson
Nothing on tv, so watch The rector's wife. I want some fresh faces. Well enough acted but it didn't convince me.Published on 29 Jan. 2014 by Margaret Bawden
I enjoyed the storyline and the subtle development of the characterisation. Much was left to your own thinking and understanding.Published on 22 Aug. 2013 by Estelle
