Editorial Reviews

The Black Candle: Catherine Cookson's story, set in the north of England in the 1880s, follows the fortunes of Bridget Mordaunt, a young woman who inherits a factory from her father and wins respect from the workforce as she turns it into a thriving business. But a dark cloud looms on the horizon as Joe, her respected manager, falls foul of an opportunistic aristocrat, Lionel Filmore, and is wrongly accused of murder. The Black Velvet Gown: This dramatic romance, set in northern England in the 1830s, centers around Riah Millican, a strong-minded miner's widow who takes a job as housekeeper to the reclusive Percival Miller. He gives her gifts - even educates her children - until Riah finds out the perverted motive behind his generosity and vows to leave his house forever. Miller, however, still exerts a hold over Riah. Will Biddy Riah's bright but willful daughter, ever find the happiness and freedom that have eluded her mother as she catches the eye of a wealthy young man?

You can't go wrong with any of her stories.

The problem doesn't arise from whoever sells this item, it is a problem with the manufacturer who has released thousands of defective discs in this boxed set.

This is a piece of our history...clothing, acting, presentation brought us hours of sheer pleasure.

These two movies are dark and unhappy.....not something you want to look at to cheer you up, but they are well done and I guess life did turn out like that in the 19th century UK and those that survived just made the best of a bad situation....but I swear I don't think this is one I will want to view a second time. Buy the earlier DVDs that have 8 movies on them. They are a much happy view even with the ends in them not all skittles and beer, you won't lie awake and cry for a fictional character!

This is a very good set and a good buy. There is only one thing wrong with it, just as Pride and Prejudis it is NOT closed captioned which is a MUST in todays world of Baby Boomers who are getting a LITTLE hard of hearing.

Catherine Cookson Boxed Set
A wonderful boxed two story DVD of a truly gifted story teller, Catherine Cookson.
I have seen several of her stories on DVD and none of them disappoint. If one enjoys
the Victorian Era, you will be hooked on all the Catherine Cookson DVDs. I was happily
surprised to get the bonus of the Catherine Cookson biography as told by the producer
of these films. The two gentlemen relating Catherine Cookson's story brought her to
life for me. She was a remarkable woman and as fascinating as the tales she tells.
I look forward to reading her many novels. Additionally, my parcel arrived just three
days after I placed my order and in perfect condition; Amazon never fails to please me
as a vendor!

The Catherine Cookson Romantic dramas are non-pareil, and are at the very top of all of the romantic dramas, they are captivating, with great plots, also with a lot of great acting and action, They deserve six stars if allowed

These are good stories, well-acted by British actors whom you will recognize from other British television programs and movies.

I ordered and re-ordered this boxed set twice now with the same results, i.e. "The Black Candle" disc is OK, but the "The Black Velvet Gown" is defective no matter if you purchased this from Amazon or one of its venders. The problem doesn't arise from whoever sells this item, it is a problem with the manufacturer who has released thousands of defective discs in this boxed set. In my first set, the "Gown" disc went into digital blocks and then skipped, hopped, and jumped about making viewing impossible. So I sent it back to the vender and Amazon sent me another boxed set that they were selling. Result: The very same as before. If it was my VCR all of my DVDs would be having this same problem. That is not the case, it is definitely a problem with the disc itself. So be warned. If you don't want to be sending and re-sending this item back to Amazon, buy "The Black Candle" separately and stay away from any copies of "The Black Velvet Gown" altogether if you can.

Cookson movies do not disappoint. These period pieces are just wonderful. I truly hope more movies will be made from her books. Nobody does it better.
