Sequel to Pilcher's "Coming Home" is well done
I enjoyed the tv movie version of "Coming Home", so I was pleased to see the sequel. It really wasn't bad. Not written by Pilcher, but in the spirit of the first story. Some characters deleted, some actors changed, but mostly a continuation from the first. A feature I really enjoyed was the use of newsreel footage from the era. It was helpful to set the stage of the various time periods involved. The basic story involves Loveday's struggle to keep the estate Nancherrow in the family after the death of her father. Lots of parallel stories involving the various characters as in the first film. It has a good feel for the changes England went through after WWII and into the early 1950's.
