The Barchester Chronicles

Show Summary

A British-produced seven-part mini-series based on the books The Warden and Barchester Towers by Anthony Trollope. Had quite an impressive cast, and was nominated for 7 BAFTAs, winning one for Chris Pemsel's Production Design. "Jumped the Pond" and aired in America on PBS stations. The sleepy diocese of Barchester is shaken-up by a series of reforms and reformers coming from the public domain as well as the hierarchy of the Anglican church. The professional and personal fallout from these changes affects a number of persons in this inter-connected community. Stand-out performances by Nigel Hawthorne as Archdeacon Grantly and Alan Rickman as Reverend Slope make this mini-series worth watching...when they're not in a scene, you miss them terribly.
