The new series!

My Dad loved the books and so we watched David Jason's "Darling Buds of May."

So now they've remade it again with Bradley Walsh and Joanna Scanlan .

Loved Peter Davison's swearing vicar. However I'm sure there would've been no Asian teachers in those days.

And the new Mariette is quite attractive.

A few frankly bizarre casting decisions, but let's see where it goes. Last night's episode was a very enjoyable launch and, whilst not as funny as I'd hoped, was thoroughly delightful to watch. The rest of the series should be a treat.

Yes I wasn't quite sure where to post this but you've moved it to Other Comedy. There was already a "Larkins" thread featuring Peggy Mount though.

I think we all know what's going on with the casting. Didn't have the charm of the original but very easy to watch.
