Despite my being a Lancashire man born and bred I really wanted this to be better, after all Yorkshire is the next best thing. Unfortunately its too slow paced and probably is only going to hold me to the finale (which needs to be much better after little plot up to now) and not to any future series. Surranne has been much better in other outings but seems to be trying to get by on an insipid smile. I suspect there is insufficient meat in the storyline to really do credit to the character. Writers could do a Hollywood and use a little more poetic license. This episode was saved by Some good fringe work by Gemma Craven, the maid,groom,Mr Washington and others which is as it should be but not the focus. Timothy West is wasted in his lack of real role. I hope the finale has a lot more to offer or any future offerings will be avoided which is sad because I really wanted to enjoy it more.
