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

Oooh I loved it.
DH watched with me then I went into the kitchen to load the dishwasher without looking at my reflection in the window or the french doors grin

ooh i really enjoyed it, and i am quite fussy.

I enjoyed it, love that English countryside and tea dress atmosphere and the actors playing Eve and Lucy were very good. As were those playing Vivien and Clare.
Loads of questions at the end - main one for me was how did they know Lucy was in the barn? Was Tom responsible? He raised the alarm, maybe he found Lucy and the airman in there. Or was the fire caused by Lucy's brother Pip, who said "Sorry" at the start? For his part in carrying messages to Dwight, or because he thinks the magnifying glass or playing with matches/cigarettes started the fire. Then there's Eve...

V watchable whodunnit with spooky overtones, I thought.

oh i just assumed they were having a post coital cigarette, but may be you are right,

Forgot the father. Anyone else think there was an odd undertone in any scene with him and Lucy?

Yes I did Fiderer. Wondered if he was in fact her biological father or a step-father? There's a big age gap between Lucy and the younger brother.

Really looking forward to this week's episode!

Yup, the father seemed a bit odd with Lucy. And she was very off and dismissive with him. I wondered if he'd abused her in some way.

i assumed it was pips fault, he started the fire, killed his sister and now has been living with the guilt the past 60 years

Gingerdodger Mon 04-Mar-13 20:30:55

I think everyone, including Pip, thinks it is his fault (because he had a magnifying glass which set the hay on fine) but I think it will either be Airman Spargo from Upstairs Downstairs or her Dad after catching her with Airman Spargo who has done it.

I've actually written a blog / review about the first episide of Lightfields. Would be interesting to see what people think if you have the time and fancy a read. It's at broadsonfilm.wordpress.com if you have the time.

Marchlands complete series is on Netflix for anyone who didn't see it.

I loved Marchlands, the little girl from the 80's would have been about the same age as me and all of her things/bedroom/toys were really familiar.

I'm actually finding Lighfields a bit harder to follow wrt all the relationships between people.

anyone watch this tonight? Am enjoying it x

youfhearted Wed 06-Mar-13 23:26:27

yes, but there must be a busier thread surely?

Fiderer Thu 07-Mar-13 08:10:01

Don't think there is another thread. I thought last night's was a bit "Was that it?" although I suppose quite a lot of little bits happened. The fire, Luke going to the grave, Eve playing detective. Maybe I wanted more scary "BOO!" bits.

Reckon SquareJaw airman is a red herring.The dad is mighty suspicious. He and the mum were arguing about how he's known Lucy was in the barn - though I didn't get all they said.

atthewelles Thu 07-Mar-13 11:06:35

To be honest, apart from learning that Vivienne had some involvement in what happened, or some knowledge of what went on, last night's episode didn't really move things on very much.

There is definitely something dodgy about Lucy's father.

Asheth Thu 07-Mar-13 12:48:54

I'm enjoying it too, although I'd have liked a few more scary bits. I did jump when the cooker burst into flames!

Clawdy Thu 07-Mar-13 14:15:16

The two small boy actors playing Pip and Luke are very good, but the little girl with the curly hair is a bit wooden. So far,anyway.

So it looks like Pip and the little girl started the fire accidentally with a magnifying glass, or at least it is looking like that, but there has to be more to it. Someone let them take the blame. The little girl, the grown woman in the 70's, has blocked out that Summer's memories, which means something traumatised her. I think she saw who did it.

I am suspicious of Tom, he took it badly when Lucy turned his invitation down and he looked odd at the funeral, not sad, just....odd. Then Lucy's father is also strange and I agree with the post upthread about that peculiar moment between Lucy and him.

The actress who plays Eve is gorgeous. I love her hair colour.

I'm getting confused as to who everyone is tbh.

Which one is Tom in the past?

Who was at the funeral with the black armband?

Tom was the farm hand who was proud of becoming a home guard and turned up in his new uniform and asked Lucy out (and she turned him down) and he knew she had been seeing the American. In the 70's he showed up at the house as a handyman.

diddl Fri 08-Mar-13 17:44:04

OK-so was it her boyfriend in the black armband?

Who was the ginger haired bloke who Eve was talking to in the church(?)-saying that she had found the lighter?

Fiderer Fri 08-Mar-13 17:52:01

The ginger-haired one was also keen on Lucy, gave her the Tess of the D book. Was the clever one off to study law. They had been "walking out" before SquareJawYank turned up.

Poor Tom had always liked her but only plucked up the courage to ask her out when he got his Home Guard uniform and thought perhaps it would impress her. I am interpreting freely here grin
