Shillingbury Tales is a wonderful series - light, breezy, amusing and very addictive. If only they'd made more!!!!! Best of all, it's now on DVD in the U.K. so if you haven't seen it yet then get out there and buy a copy. You wont regret it!
Bernard Cribbins is a guest in a couple of episodes and brilliant. Diane K's dresses are straight out of the 70's (of course) but the only things that date this classic.
On an aside, the opening sequence are very reminiscent of the Vicar of Dibley. Even the local inhabitants are slightly weird like those of Dibley. But the action centres on a composer from London rather than a vicar, and it's not in-your-face comedy but a relaxing feel-good experience. And don't we need that sort of thing nowadays!
