The Sun Sets On Lark Rise to Candleford.,
This review is from: Lark Rise to Candleford: Season 4 (DVD)
Season 4 is the final season. There are six episodes only and the fact that they are rushing to a conclusion means that they are not as good as the previous 3 seasons. Still quite entertaining but you get the feeling that things are winding down. The final episode rushes along in order to make sure that all of the loose ends are tidied up. Contrary to the blurb, Brendan Coyle does not appear in this season. Be prepared to feel disappointed. The high production standard is generally maintained but the writer and director were hamstrung by the BBCs desire to dump the show as soon as possible. Quite why the Beeb took the unusual step to dump a show which has had very good viewing figures for these series is beyond me. Because of the hurried ending I have awarded 4 stars which is a pity because I have really enjoyed watching this programme. It has been my one weakness.,

I'm sorry I watched these last six. I am so disappointed in the lackluster manner in which they ended what has up to know been a wonderful series. I will return to the other three time and again. But I think I will toss this DVD set away and pretend I never saw it.

The BBC did not "dump" the show because it was failing. Actually it was one of BBC 1's highest rated shows when they decided to pull the plug. The reason season four seems to feel less than the previous series is because the producers had decided to cut the show "while it was ahead". So yes the series did not develop as nicely as the three previous series.
