I am always very worried about watching screen adaptations of my favourite books - this is absolutely spot on. This is a DVD to cherish and bring out every couple of years when you are indoors with flu and a hot toddy!
I watched the first episode of this wonderful series simply because as a great fan of The Good Life I wanted to see what Paul Eddington and Felicity Kendall would do with rather more serious material. Halfway through this episode I ordered the DVD immediately! There is nothing I can add to previous reviews except that one reviewer bemoans the lack of subtitles, (so would I!), but the DVD I have must be the newer (2008) edition as it does have them.
