Lark Rise to Candleford: My one weakness...










Tonight saw the BBC relaunch one of its most popular and enduring period dramas - 'Lark Rise to Candleford'. Based on a trilogy of semi-autobiographical novels by English novelist Flora Thompson, the drama is now into its third series, and boasts in its cast names such as Julia Sawalha, Linda Basset, and formerly Dawn French. Although the novels themselves were set in and around the 1890s, the time frame of the television series is ambiguous and includes numerous ananchronisms in the events its portrays. The current run is set to last for 12 episodes and will be sure to pull in large audiences along the way. The first episode can be seen here
