Just starting, I'm looking forward to this.

ging tell me about it ging! I'm thankful I was born in the 1980s!
My mum was a young mum but she still remembers the comments about lefties at her very strict catholic school, so she was always particular about people not making comments to me about it. Including getting snotty with teachers who whined I rubbed along the page and messed it up.

At least the other teacher was nice.
I love period dramas but this one needs a bit less misery for me to want to continue with it.

Sadly I thought this would be depressing and I'm not wrong. BBC dramas ain't what they used to be!

dingit Sun 31-Mar-13 21:25:55

I thought this would have a feel good factor, like call the midwife hmm

Thinking same tickety boo not understanding why they've started off so bad and harrowing. It's not entertaining, it's upsetting. Not happy, thought it would be a CTM replacement or at least 'How Green is my valley'.

I Vow To Thee My Country best bit

I am giving it 5 min too and I will suffer Dave or something unless it improves.

For farmers of that era they seem to have a large (if sparse) house.
Love the young teacher defying the HT.

Spectacularly underwhelmed ....

LittleBairn Sun 31-Mar-13 21:31:37

Naughty little shit peaking at them.

Me too Oldboots I don't mind a bit of misery as long as it is mixed in with some nice stuff too.

Too depressing for Easter night but will watch to the end.

dingit Sun 31-Mar-13 21:32:35

PenelopePisstop Sun 31-Mar-13 21:33:44
