Journey back to Childhood
5 March 2005 | by mikiapSee all my reviews

I've seen this series years ago on TV and now it's available on DVD again and it's like a journey back to childhood. I've been in love with the main actress, Judi Bowker, that time and it's like a revival to see this pictures again. The stories are residing in the England of the ending 19th century, the Victorian time. A medical doctor has opened his doctor's practice outside of London on the countryside. He brought along his daughter, his son and his housekeeper. In the first episode they met this black horse which later is named Black Beauty. This is the type of 'ideal world' stories you like to be watched by children. The good always wins in the end and the bad always loses. But sometimes aside of all the triviality it can tug on your heartstrings. If you get the chance take a look.
