Great TV

I could hardly believe my luck when I heard one of my favourite books was being made into a BBC drama

It starts tonight for those of you that haven't heard...... I'm really looking forward to it!
Miranda Hart as Chummy should be excellent.

As if that wasn't enough I nearly burst with excitement when I saw the trailer for this last week

It starts next Sunday at 9pm...... it's been a long time coming as they couldn't decide on the script.
I'm excited but a little nervous....... you see I love this book, I've read it so many time over the last 16 years.... in fact more times then I care to mention! 
I know all the little details & I'm worried they will ruin it, for a start I don't think the man playing Stephen even looks like Stephen! I've heard it's going to be quite saucy but then so is the book!

Like the stage play

They have cut the 1978 section.... I think this is a shame, one of the strongest parts of the book is when Elizabeth goes to Theipval I says she didn't know about WW1. 

Neither did I...... I can't remember being taught it at school...... but it made me want to find out more & within 6 months we had visited the Mein Gate & war cemeteries.

I wait with baited breath to see if it's as good as the book....... will you be watching?


  1. Never heard of that book, call the midwife. Sounds intriguing.

  2. Ooo I have just recently read (again) Call the Midwife ... so good.
    And No .... not having a TV I dont keep up with 'whats on'... I shall make a point of watching it on iplayer .... should be good. Thanks for keeping me abreast of things!

  6. I'm loving "call the midwife" and in this weeks episode the girls were having tea in a cafe and I recognised it, it's just off Columbia Road in London!! Lucey x
