I'm waiting for the second (and last) episode of Return to Cranford to start on PBS. I will be sorry to see it end. The stories are so charming, and the casting and acting so exactly fit my images of the characters. I have read the book and listened to the audio book version read by Nadia May.
Another wonderful Elizabeth Gaskell adaptation for television was Wives and Daughters. I wish PBS would show that again. (I think it was originally on PBS, although I might be wrong about that.)
