The loveable rascal with a heart of gold
Albert Finney (The Bourne Ultimatum) returns as H.E. Bates' loveable raunchy rogue in six more nostalgic tales set during one long hot summer, circa 1900. The series once again co-stars Sue Johnston (Clatterford) as Silas' eagle-eyed housekeeper Mrs Betts and Joe Prospero (Finding Neverland) as his adoring nephew Edward.
Silas continues to instruct his nephew in the ways of country life and is delighted to see Edward develop his own natural cunning. Whether poaching in the pond, rolling in the hay or boasting in the pub, Silas always finds time to indulge in his two greatest loves: women and home-made wine - the combination of which constantly lands him in hot water.
