Light-heart, zany Brit humor. Stellar cast of some Brit greats: David Jason (Touch of Frost & others) Pam Ferris (Call the Mid-wife most recent) Zeta-Jones really young & lovely. Pretty tame for Americans - I think it leans more toward fans of Brit films.

Set in Kent in the '50's this is a delightful mini-series that saw Catherine Zeta-Jones begin her accent into fame as she shines beautifully as Mariette the eldest daughter of Ma & Pa Larkin. The premise is of a large and unconventional family full of charms and quirks and includes a charming host of characters that keep the pace up. I recommend this series highly. The only thing that we had issue with was that the entire set is kept together and so it meant for us returning and requesting/ re-checking out the item 3. It contains 5 discs with I believe 4 hours per disc. It is more than worth it though.
