    While pleasant, and scenic, and some great moments, story lines are often left-incomplete.

    The failure of Dorcas Lane to ever marry or find happiness somewhat unreal, it depicts her as a know it all---can;t make a decision. not good.

    As a result the show is only "fair", and mediocre in story continuity.
  • Lark Rise To Candleford was written by Flora Thompson and first published in 1945. The books are written from the point of view of the author and deal with the life and times of that era. A gentle ride through a life that's no longer lived.

    Although substantially different from the books this show follows the theme and styles and picks out the best bits to bring about a gentle and addictive story of rural england.
    Passions and lives are lived tales are told and meddling and gossip abounds, it's pure heart warming television and enjoyably rich.
    The story follows Laura to Candleford PostOffice run by Dorcas Lane a cousin, we see the lives of her family in the hamlet of Lark Rise from wence she came, and the village of Candlefords people their lives, trials and tribulations.
    Key figures are Laura herself, her family, DOrcas Lane, Thomas Brown the Post Man, Zilla the housekeeper, Ruby and Pearl both sisters and dressmakers who love to gossip, and the manor house family Sir Timothy Midwinter and his wife Adeline. In Lark Rise we see Queenie and Twister, Caroline and Alf Arless, Laura's brother Edmund, Paxton who runs the Wagon and Horses pub and many more.
    for a nice watch i reccomend this show
