Yes-me! I don't watch much on 5 but saw this advertised a few weeks ago and it looks lovely.

Hmm. I'll be comparing it to the 80's series. But I'll give it a go. I was brought up on JH books.

10 mins to go! Am so excited!!

I loved the books, which I read before it started on TV first time round so I never liked the show as it didn't live up to the books. But a few decades later I'm going to give it another try.

Off to a good start. At least he's Scottish!

Toddlerteaplease Tue 01-Sep-20 21:10:03

He left Glasgow with two cases. He's lost one!

Mrs. Hall is a lot friendlier looking.

Toddlerteaplease Tue 01-Sep-20 21:31:21

And too young! Wish they'd follow the story in the book.

I'm recording it. Hope it's good. Apparently Series 2 has already been confirmed. I know it's on at 9pm but can anyone who's watched tonights episode tell me if it's family friendly viewing. I failed to find anything about the age guidance online.

Carbon had forgotten he was coming and Mrs Hall knew nothing about him.

Toddlerteaplease Tue 01-Sep-20 21:43:04

Hmm. Not impressed.

They do seem to be adding extra drama, but the countryside/animals/sets are good so I'll stick with it and hope it settles down.

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 01-Sep-20 21:54:33

So far it has been family friendly. It's great. But I miss the music.

Swingoutsistersledge2 Tue 01-Sep-20 21:56:42

Enjoying watch Samuel West play Cedric he is very handsome and the double of his dad .

Toddlerteaplease Tue 01-Sep-20 22:00:43

What a load of rubbish. The characters are all wrong.

It was the original series (then the books) that led me to the job I’ve been in for nearly 20 years. I’m not a vet - that plan didn’t actually come to anything - but I do drive round the Yorkshire countryside in a 4 x 4. But this is as a result of the original TV series, so I have a great fondness for them.
I’m enjoying the new series so far.

Toddlerteaplease Tue 01-Sep-20 22:02:21

Seigfreid was eccentric but not unpleasant at all. They hit it off straight away.

BikeRunSki Tue 01-Sep-20 22:03:32

The music is at the end!!!!!

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 01-Sep-20 22:03:48

and there's the music

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 01-Sep-20 22:05:18

happy sigh.

OhYouBadBadKitten Tue 01-Sep-20 22:05:52

very hard not to give spoilers to the family.

MardiBras Tue 01-Sep-20 22:06:08

The music!

I thought it was good. Nothing will replace the original tv series but this is a fair attempt.

JaneJeffer Tue 01-Sep-20 22:06:12

I enjoyed it. I'd say it's family friendly if you have no objection to cow's vaginas! (fake looking ones)

MutteringDarkly Tue 01-Sep-20 22:06:18

I enjoyed this; badly needed something soothing and to hide out in a world where things all work out in the end, so this fitted perfectly.
