Rich, funny and emotional, the first series follows the relationship of two contrasting communities: Lark Rise, the small hamlet gently holding on to the past, and Candleford, the small market town bustling into the future. Seen through the eyes of young Laura, their inhabitants endure many upheavals and struggles as the inexorable change comes; their stories by turns poignant, spirited and uplifting.

The best series
In my opinion this is the best series of all the Larkrise to Candleford. While the others are also very good, the relationship between Dorcas and Sir Timothy gives an added dimention to an occationly slow TV programme. Would recommend this the most as it is slightly more interesting to watch. If you like it then the others are worth buying too, but watch this first!
Slightly slow to get into but you get hooked!
It takes time to fully understand the characters but once you do you will be looking for more. Dorcas is brilliantly portrayed and Lady Adelaide is a very cleverly annoyiong character.
It's a good series and I shall be looking out for more.
