This review is from: Cornwall [DVD] (DVD)
Sadly this series was a lost opportunity to produce a travel series about a popular part of the UK that has been sadly neglected by tv companies. I should have been prepared; the series was originally transmitted in the same slot as another series 'The Lakes'. That series, fronted by Rory McGrath succeeded in taking another outstanding location and finding the most tedious, boring characters in that area and focusing on them at the expense of anything of value. I was struck at first that this may be an ironic series, but no, it was for real.
Sadly, Cornwall was produced by the sae team and clearly Caroline Quinten had to work with the same banal bunch of people. So, instead of discovering the incredible heritage and history, we learned utterly irrelevant fact about a Mousehole estate agent and some totally forgettable WI people. There is more Real Cornwall in a DVD of Doc Martin. Avoid!
