I have recently finished watching this. It just seems to meander along : there are few dramatic incidents and no cliff-hangers at the end of each episode. The first episode is very slow moving and many of the episodes end almost abruptly - though in a gentle sort of way ! Hayley Mills is very good (as always) as is the actress playing Elspeth. The actress playing Mrs. Palmer, their neighbour, is very pretty and has an illicit affair during the story. Overall, I enjoyed it. The picture quality, by today's standards, is not especially good.
