The Village – BBC 1


Series 2, episode 1 – featuring Julian Sands chasing people round the grounds of Lyme Park with a dog, a boxer baring his bottom, posh girls practising the Charleston, and a calf in Maxine Peake’s front room.

The BBC have obviously made a huge effort to cheer things up after everyone moaned about how miserable the first series was, and some of the characters are genuinely quite interesting. Also, there is a strong sense of the 1920s, of the political and social changes of the era. The rest of the series should be worth giving a go – and it’s rather nice seeing Quarry Bank Mill starring in The Mill at 8pm on Sundays and then Lyme Park starring in this straight afterwards :-).
