Barchester Chronicles

I’ve been watching The Barchester Chronicles.. It stars a very young Alan Rickman (as well as many other familiar faces). It’s lovely to watch – the costume and design are fabulous. It doesn’t seem as vibrant as modern period dramas, but that might have something to do with the quality of the recording (video tape maybe). Definitely worth viewing if you’re a period drama fan.

I’ve never read any Trollope, but I picked up a copy of The Warden from my local second hand book shop.

Here is a review of the television series
