Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lark Rise to Candleford: Season 4 (DVD)
absolutely wonderful and entertaining, I enjoyed it so much I immediately wanted to buy the actual book and learn more about it. I bought all the avalible seasons of it and hope somehow someway they continue to make more like it. They had actors from other famous and well known bbc series like north and south, pride and prejudice... it was amazing to see how some actors have aged and others make you yearn for actors like them in the United States that it is more about art and craft not $$$ dollar signs and press

I purchased the entire series from Amazon earlier this year. I was totally hooked from the first time I saw the show on MPT (Maryland). I have found there seems to be an episode or two missing from my series. I have watched all of my discs and cannot find the episode with "Peg Leg" in it. I saw it on TV but I don't know why I can't find it in my series. I absolutely love every single actor in this series. I am in love with the Hamlet and all of its characters. It is so well played - from the main characters to Twister and Queenie to Alf, and the "TOWN GOSSIP". No episode ever addressed what happened to the Gossip's daughter who was pregnant. It is a shame that Robert Timmins just disappears leaving the viewer perplexed that you never see him again. I don't know why they cancelled this series. There were plenty more storylines I could think of to warrant at least one more season. Has anyone else noticed episodes that seem to be missing from the "complete" series. Would love to have seen if Laura wed Daniel, or if Fisher actually owned her romantic heart. Would loved to have seen Dorcas find true love and wed, bending "the regulations". And Thomas Brown - what a great character this actor played! His wife was excellent as well - and Amelia Cordelia stole my heart! I would have loved to have seen Alfie and Minnie tie the knot as well. Minnie was played so well by the actress. I would love to know how to contact the BBC to register my sadness at the end of this show.

This is a reply to bakers heaven-I so agree with you and your thoughts and comparisons to British actors as opposed to Hollywood. I saw an interview with Rupert Penry Jones, who said he was not interested in Hollywood, he was very happy doing TV series and movies such as Persuasion,The 39 steps,etc. While at the same time Dan Stevens left Downton Abbey for Hollywood, got himself killed off, broke many hearts of fans and Downton cast and crew, still, he did a stint on Broadway but have not seen him yet in a movie here in the USA. He learned his lesson, but you are my idol for showing your preference, and you have my feelings with you. This was a great series, love Brendan Coyle, He was marvelous in The Glass Virgin, young and beautiful, and very much appealing still as Bates on the great British production of Downton Abbey. This series has been quite good, yet in a way it has been a heart breaker, and a heart warmer, go figure. I am glad there will be no more. I have not finished it yet, glad you did not give me any spoilers. I thi9nk the aging of the British stars from,say Pride and Prejudice has not lost their appeal,is a great example, long live Mr.Darcy 1995.
