Overview

Irresistible characters, a stellar cast, and the non-stop liveliness of a 19th-century English country market town capture your heart in this brilliant mini-series based on three novels by Elizabeth Gaskell. Dame Judi Dench stars as kind-hearted Miss Matty Jenkyns -- the younger sister of Cranford's severe moral guardian, Deborah (Dame Eileen Atkins). Share dramatic ups and downs during an exciting year in the life of the town, as Matty meets her long-lost first love (Sir Michael Gambon), a handsome young doctor makes many hearts beat faster, and alarming rumors of a new railway line prove true. Lushly filmed with period costumes in beautiful historic settings, Cranford was originally aired in the fall of 2007 on BBC 1, and aired in the U.S. on PBS's Masterpiece Classic.
