Love on a Branch Line
Here's what the television critic of London's Daily Express said of this surreal comedy series: "Utterly charming, exquisitely acted and directedthe nearest thing...to perfect." So much for British restraint! The story that inspired this rave highlights the misadventures of one Jasper Pye, who trades his tedious desk-bound job for an obscure research project in remote Arcady Village. There he finds all the intrigue, sparkle, and romance missing from his former life. The message? Travel off the beaten path onto a branch line. 3 hours 20 min. on 2 DVDs.

It is quintessentially English - The borders of Norfolk and Suffolk in a sleepy village called Arcady, a civil servant with the wonderful name of Jasper Pye comes from London to Arcady Hall, a Tudor style Estate (Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk) and learns to enjoy his 'boring' life a little more by flirting with the 3 daughters of Lord Flamborough (Leslie Philips). Watch as Jasper attempts to be tactful when he is forced to close down the Government statistical unit at the Hall, while trying not to hurt his new friends. Romance and lust is not lacking in this fantastic English story set in the late 1950s.
manor house. A great gift for the Masterpiece Theater fan.
