Things were different then.
If you read the books Midge you will see there are no black people in them. As Connie says it was that era. So to alter the characters was a ridiculous idea and totally unnecessary as was the idea to do a new series.

Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Dennyboys comment says it all really. Why on earth did the producers think they needed to change the story so much.

Why remake a perfectly good series and even worse change the characters to such an extent ? Definitely trying to please a certain section of the population.

Very few villages even today have POC in them. So even less in the 50s. As for a white girl going with a bl @ ck man. She would be shunned.

I didn't realise that racism was so prevalent in 2021 britain, even among viewers of a poor tv show.

Political casting again
Why remake old favourites with black or Asian actors. There were none in the original series but as usual tv companies bow down to pleasing the ethnic minorities. Wake up UK.

Bad idea
If they had to do anything then carry on with the story where the first series ended. To remake it is crazy you cannot improve on perfection.

What a let down
Bradley Walsh can be a decent actor so watched with interest, for a while. Oh my word, this is awful. I can't think of anything good to say about it. I won't be watching again.

Too PC
Indian brigadier and school teacher, bl @ ck publican and bl @ ck love interest for mariette in the 1950s. I don't think so.

Agree with previous comment. Also, far too PC! "If it ain't broke, why fix it?"

How to give less than 1*?
It does not deserve one star. Neither did TDBOM. IF you want excellence, read the series of novels by H.E. Bates, 'cos these awful offerings have no excellence
