Cranford at Christmas...








Period drama 'Cranford' has reappeared for a two part Christmas special. The series is based on a novel by Victorian author Elizabeth Gaskell of the same name, which was first published in Charles Dickens' literary journal 'Household Words'. Gaskell's works often centre around matters of rural concern, and 'Cranford' is no different; based on Knutsford in Chesire, the town of Cranford faces the contemporary issues of industrialisation and railway expansion. The first episode can be seen here, and the next episode will be aired on December 27th.
