For all the 'marchlands' fans - this looks similar. Looking forward to it.

Me too! I loved Marchlands so am excited about Lightfields.

Love things like this - crickley hall too - although not as good as the book. sad

I love Aaron out of Emmerdale so I hope he's good in this.

Oh, I saw the adverts for it but didn't know when it was on.

I loved Marchlands and Crickley Hall too.

Now I just have to sort out watching The Woman in Black blush

Yes will definitely be watching. I absolutely loved Marchlands. I thought it was the best thing on TV that year, so I have high hopes. I liked the first 2 episodes of Crickley Hall, but found the final one a bit disappointing/confusing.

DonderandBlitzen Wed 27-Feb-13 10:39:54

Not long now!

I hope this will be good. I am recording and watching tomorrow as DH doesn't like this sort of thing!

Somehow I managed to overlook Marchlands but I did enjoy Crickley Hall. Is Lightfields going to be spooky? I like spooky.

Lightfields looks far more sinister than Marchlands.

MilkshakeMaker Wed 27-Feb-13 21:15:51

Is it a follow on from marchlands or just the makers of, I've missed the first few mins and I can't figure it out, can't work out if its the same house or not.... Help!

Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Wed 27-Feb-13 22:02:04

No it's nothing to do with Marchlands, just a similar type of story.

Bit spooky. No idea why the barn actually burnt down though. Is it meant to be a whodunit?

Dh can't be arsed to watch it. He wasn't that impressed with Marchlands.

MilkshakeMaker Wed 27-Feb-13 22:20:57

Yeah I didn't think it was after watching a bit more! I thought the first few episodes Marchlands were really good but it dragged on towards the end.

I can't decide what I thought this one, it seemed to have more breaks than running time! I'm blaming Eve or the dad I might backtrack on that later though

Rollergirl1 Wed 27-Feb-13 22:27:34

I think you're meant to think either Eve or the younger brother (the great grandfather in present day). Right at the beginning he pulled a family photo out of the four of them and said "I'm sorry Lucy." Also his son said to the grandson that his dad was an only child so it seems that he doesn't know about Lucy.

MilkshakeMaker Wed 27-Feb-13 22:35:27

Oh I missed that beginning bit, and hadn't linked the two together either, maybe that's just guilt for passing the message on, Lucy wouldn't have been in there if he hadnt?

And just to clarify, Tom from the 80's is grown up version of dishy aaron from emmerdale?

I wouldn't be able to watch these shows if it wasn't for mn, dp doesn't help me at all!

It was a bit Carrie's War with the sheep skull and the fire, don't you think?

Adversecamber Wed 27-Feb-13 22:47:02

Marchlands not that spooky except the hand in the washing machine when I jumped out f my skin. Found this more atmospheric.

Chavvytastic Wed 27-Feb-13 22:50:48

I found it a bit slow not sure I like it much.

atthewelles Thu 28-Feb-13 10:45:05

I thought this was more melodramatic and less complex than Marchlands.

Marchlands built the spooky atmosphere up very slowly and concentrated more on the characters in the earlier episodes. I thought that worked better. I also felt that Lightfields lacked a central character. In Marchlands Ruth was the person you really felt for and her presence remained strong and haunting across the decades even when she didn't feature. It was for her that you really wanted the mystery solved and I think that added a pathos that Lightfields didn't have.

I did enjoy it though and will stick with it. I wonder what the full story with Vivienne is? She doesn't appear to have any clear memories of the Summer she spent in the village and it seems strange that she would choose to come back there thirty years later to write her book.

Also, how did Dwight survive the fire?

TV guide said LIGHTFIELDS on last night, It was not in Midlands region

guineapiglet Thu 28-Feb-13 12:41:23

I watched it by myself last night and felt quite spooked in places! Lots of build up and slow music. Loved the 1975 disco, took me right back.Thought it was very atmospheric, does anyone know where it was filmed? Looked like Norfolk/Suffolk? I really enjoy dramas with lots of layers, linking into the past, and based around the same building, but I really hope its not going to be too predictable - personally I think that Eve looked like she had a lot to hide??

Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Thu 28-Feb-13 22:22:44

It was meant to be set in Suffolk and it did look a bit like our landscape but Jill Halfpennny's accent was more Geordie/Cornwall/Devon/god knows where. It definitely wasn't Suffolk.

Asheth Thu 28-Feb-13 23:03:45

It's set in Suffolk, but was filmed in Hertforshire and Sussex I think. (I looked it up as I love Suffolk and wanted to know where it was filmed)

Tbh I didn't think much of it sad

Not sure if will watch next week
