Back to Wales with the District Nurse,
By A Customer
This review is from: The District Nurse - Complete Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Great to see this childhood drama out for the first time on DVD. Good solid drama, which does make Welsh mining villages appear to be emerging from the dark ages. In terms of drama, it has all the hallmarks of good BBC Saturday night fare, but without the sexuality that pervades modern 21st century drama (what a shame). Dear old Nerys is there acting with passion, if not always from the subtle school of performing. Nice to see Kevin Francis (now a successful London agent) in episode one as poor young miner Billy Thatcher. If the mine blast didn't get him the typhoid almost would.
