disappointed
I was rather disappointed with this BBC version of South Riding. It compares badly against the 1939 film and the 1974 ITV versions. Indeed it is a pity that the ITV freeview channels could not show again the 1974 version, although it is available on DVD. The same can not be said of many more serials from the seventies and eighties including the excellent 1979 series The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie of these no DVDs exist. But to return to this version of South Riding the trouble with it is it's a very much a cut down version. Another thing is the bad casting, of the three main charactors from the original novel namely Sarah Burton, Robert and Midge Carne they were just to young for the parts they are playing. At least when the BBC took another ITV series Upstairs Downstairs they made it as a sequel to the original which worked well this remake did not.

Robert tries to avoid Sarah following their encounter in Manchester - but his emotional turmoil is overshadowed by a lawsuit that could ruin him. Meanwhile, Sarah fights her feelings of humiliation as she searches for a way to get Lydia Holly back into school, and Huggins makes a desperate attempt to recoup his losses. Drama set in rural 1930s Yorkshire, starring Anna Maxwell Martin and David Morrissey
