Miss Matty's house is full of life and bustle. Her dream of having a child in the house has been realized in the birth of Tilly, daughter of her maid Martha and carpenter Jem. Elsewhere, the shadow of the railway still looms, but the line has been halted five miles outside Cranford, a disaster as far as Captain Brown is concerned. Meanwhile, as Mr. Buxton returns to town with his son, William, and his niece, Erminia, Miss Matty becomes concerned about another young person, Peggy Bell, who lives in an isolated cottage with her mother and domineering brother. She decides to intervene and engineers an invitation that will bring the four young people together. But when tragedy strikes, she fears she has opened a Pandora's box from which Cranford will never recover.

Skip Return to Cranford. It is poorly written and even the fine actors can’t save it from the wretched mess it is. Enjoy the original Cranford series which is delightful and don’t go back for more.

Edited to add: This review is for "Cranford," but for some reason it is also showing up under "Return to Cranford," as well. I enjoyed both!

Life in the little town of Cranford purrs along at a predictable pace, with sharp eyes observing and observers commenting sharply on anything seen as out of ordinary. With the arrival of a handsome new doctor and a forthright, forward-thinking father, hearts begin to flutter and tongues begin to wag. A perfect mix of humor and drama that holds your interest, loaded to the gills with talented actors recognizable from the impressive body of excellent British movies and television.

VERY GOOD 2nd Series to excellent Cranford Brit television series. This has 4 episodes covering the continued attempted expansion of the railway to little country town Cranford, with the town ladies competing with some of town people trying to make money, control properties, and more.

An amiable tale of 1840s life in an English village and class mixing. Judi Dench is her usual talented self. Note this story is part of a larger BBC series, so some relationships are indirectly mentioned.

Miss Pole: "A new, young doctor is coming to live in our midst! And Dr. Morgan has arranged a house for him; and he'll be kept by a widow who'll not arrive for a fortnight, was married to another doctor, and knows all about disease and surgery! So! What do you think to all of that?" Mrs. Forrester: "...That there is not sufficient sickness here, to keep him entertained!"

Mrs. Forrester: "Miss Pole... once a soul has known affection, 'tis more alert to the advantage of it!" Miss Pole: "You are out to trounce me... because you have had a husband, and I have not!" Mrs. Forrester (picks up a dish, smiling): "Bread and butter?"
