While I am not an Anglophile, this series is delighting me as well. Maggie Smith is so unique and arch. Thanks for filling in the historic and garden details.


I've been reading wonderful things about this series; thank you for identifying the location. I just checked Netflix and it will be available on January 25 on dvd, so I just added it to my queue.

Linda - My husband read somewhere that the "version" we are seeing on PBS has been edited from the original that aired in Great Britain last fall. Supposedly they cut 2 hours from the U.S. version -- dumbed down for American audiences who supposedly have a shorter attention span than their European counterparts. UGH! The series (the original British series) is available on Netflix starting on 1/25 (we have it in our queue). Did you (or any of your readers) feel that the conclusion of last night's episode seemed cut off? We watched it with another couple and we all had the same reaction to the ending and thought it may have had something to do with the editing my husband had read about. I just asked my husband -- he believes his source was an article he read in The Financial Times.


Susan — I heard that we are seeing the same version but in four episodes of 90 minutes instead of 6 episodes of one hour each. And because of that, our versions break in different spots in the story. That would certainly explain the sense of the ending being cut off. It is available on Netflix so I will probably take a look at that version to see if it is in fact different once I've finished watching it on PBS.

I've just been catching up on your blog. It's so wonderfully eclectic, filled with wonderful and fascinating information and beautifully illustrated! Loved the leeks, especially.
