Forever Green

Show Summary

Having inherited a country house from a lady Harriet Boult (Pauline Collins) nursed, the Boults move to the Somerset countryside with their children Freddy and Tom.

The series has all the usual cliches like stubborn farmers, horse theft, crop spraying, city interlopers, badger baiting and the aristocratic lady of the manor, amongst many others.

However it is all the better for it in that like when drinking a Coca-Cola, you know what you are getting before opening the can!

Car lovers will like the sub-plot of Jack Boult(John Alderton) being an ex-rally driver who ends up working in the local classic car garage.

He drives a wonderful Alvis convertible and discovers for his boss, amongst other things, a Bugatti and a Rolls-Royce.

To summarise, any city dweller with a hankering for the country will love this soft focus and almost sugary portrayal of the English countryside and like me will be scouring the internet for old country houses to do up!
