Have you watched this series

We have been completely hooked by a series we were recommended to view. This all began as Brid and I wanted to have a nice couple of hours watching a Girlie type movie or the like on a Thurdsay when Dermot is at Darts.
We have watched several Jane Austens, viewed several Ballets and I was looking for something else. So I began my search and it was suggested we view  Lark Rise to Candleford. It has been so much fun watching every episode, watching the characters unfold, and enjoying knowing nothing will need to be fast forwarded or stopped, due to course language or scenes we see unfit for our family viewing.
We are just beginning series 3 and had a chat to the libarian at our local library. She suggested the library purchase the series. I said we were enjoying it very much. With that, she headed to another section of the library and came back with this book that the series is based on.

Every night we watch an episode. Last night as we drove back from Ballet, I said to Brid.."Do you think we could squeeze an episode in before Bed?" And after we unpacked Ballet bags, unpacked groceries and organised ourselves, we sat down to watch Series 3.

The series has several actresses we are familar with, including Claudie Blakley, Julia Sawalha, Dawn French, to name but a few.

 Here is the description of the series:- Flora Thompson's charming love letter to a vanished corner of rural England is brought to life in this warm-hearted adaptation. Set in the Oxfordshire countryside in the 1880s, this rich, funny and emotional series follows the relationship of two contrasting communities: Lark Rise, the small hamlet gently holding on to the past, and Candleford, the small market town bustling into the future.
