'lark rise to candelford' is one of those divinely calming and courageous bbc dramas that both seduces and delights. it is calming in that the pastoral country scenes are soothing. it is courageous in that hours and hours of filming was spent on capturing terrific characters discovering timeless values that lead to satisfying choices. dive into tears and laughter and 2 seasons of wonderful individuals you will come to love.
the truly magnificent cast is headed by julia salwalha, famously known as the daughter in 'absolutely fabulous.' she is now older, wiser, and totally brilliant as the postmistress who weaves her way between 'uptown' candleford and the poorer folk of lark rise.
