5.0 out of 5 stars Hadleigh on top form., 19 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hadleigh - Series 3 [1973] [DVD] (DVD)
The best of the four series by some way. All the ingredients are there for a high quality popular series. An impressive lead character with a beautiful but headstrong wife, an enigmatic butler, Sutton, and good old aunt, Lady Helen Hadleigh, who always around to throw a spanner in the works.

James meets and marries Jennifer with indecent haste, while knowing far less about the young woman than her close friends. The only relative of the groom attending the wedding is Lady Helen. In previous series of Gazette and Hadleigh, two pairs of aunts and uncles have appeared. Either the writers had a memory lapse or the Grim Reaper was exacting a heavy toll early 1970s Yorkshire. A politician once said that the secret of a long and happy marriage was selective deafness - with Jennifer as your wife you would need to have your fingers in both your ears 90% of the time. She is a moody woman. An interesting character is her father, a little bit dodgy self-made businessman, Welshman Charlie Caldwell with a love of Liverpool.

The stories are very good with difficulties surrounding the marriage including a funny episode when there is a misunderstanding between Jennifer and Sutton when sugar and salt containers are swapped with amusing consequences. James and Jennifer seem on the verge of settling their relationship in the final episode but as neither producer Jacky Stoller nor Hadleigh actor, Gerald Harper, had an easy relationship with the lovely Hilary Dwyer, the beautiful Jennifer did not appear in the final series when the character's reputation was trashed.

But, as a watch alone series it is an astounding example of popular 1970s drama.
