| Decades after "Winterset," Arrives "Somerset"
This stylish 30-minute television daytime serial has been promoted as a spin-off from its parent series "Another World," which is set in the fictional community of Bay City, not to be confused with the Michigan city, and yet "Somerset" is sometimes said to be set in Michigan.

Well, "Somerset" takes on various tones as its central themes alter under the direction of a changing slate of head writers throughout its six-year tenure, which begins with the characters of Missy, Lahoma and Sam, who leave Bay City with the aspirations of new ventures and challenges, and segues into story-lines of Romance, Mystery and Crime, involving families and individuals along the way.

Now, this series continues to coexist with "Another World," occasionally welcoming an exchange of characters or references upon one series of another.

Scheduled in the final afternoon time-slot, "Somerset" lives up to its evening foreshadowing in elegant fashion with class and style, with Drama and Romance intertwining this fictional suburban community.

Many familiar lovely actresses have graced this series with their fine talents, including Bibi Besch, Veleka Gray, Alice Hirson, Georgeann Johnson, Fawne Harriman, Lois Kibbee, Audrey Landers, Susan MacDonald, Beverly Penberthy, Mae Questel, Jane Rose, Tina Sloan, Lois Smith, Marie Wallace, Sigourney Weaver, Ann Wedgeworth and JoBeth Williams.

And also many familiar distinguished actors have performed during the years of "Somerset," including Richard Bright, Gene Bua, Jordan Charney, George Coe, Nicolas Coaster, Joel Crothers, Ted Danson, Val Dufour, Bernard Grant, Bruce Gray, Lou Jacobi, Barry Jenner, Ed Kemmer, Ted Le Plat, Ron Martin, James O'Sullivan, Michael Nouri, Jameson Parker, Dennis Patrick, Christopher Pennock, Roger Rathburn, Gary Sandy, Frank Schofield, Richard Shoberg, Gary Swanson, Edward Winter.

So, following "Somerset" generates many memories of character interaction in grand style, often complex, and invariably providing entertaining escapism and dreams which coincide with it.
