| Even better than the books.
I saw this for the first time back in the early 80s and fell in love - with the story, the cast, the music - with everything about it. I was already in my early 20s, but I dropped everything to watch it. It's wonderful. There are scenes that are laugh-out-loud funny, but I start to cry when Christina and William fly the Channel, and it's almost non-stop from there until after Isobel's birth.

I am, however, very surprised that none of the younger cast members has gone on to "bigger and better" things. They are all very talented and were wonderful in their roles. I'd love to see them do other things.

It is unusual for me to prefer an adaptation to a book, but in this case it's true. The books are enjoyable, but the series is a delight. Back in the days before VCRs, the books were all I had, so I bought them and read them all more times than I can say.

When the tapes came out, I was ecstatic. I ordered them immediately and had a Flambards marathon (repeated several times over the years!). Now I dream about the day it comes out on DVD...with commentaries!
