What a surprise seeing you slate an ITV show, Samuel.
I'm enjoying it so far, the story is being told at a far better pace than Downton Abbey and I think the acting is decent.
While I agree that it's unsurprising to see him criticise ITV, and it is tedious, there are certain people who do the same for BBC, and wouldn't be liking this if it was on BBC
I think it's alright, but I feel I've seen it all before and done much better in The Paradise. I'm glad the BBC got that out first because it would have been a shame if a show 4 years in the making, and something Bill Gallagher had wanted to do long before he did Lark Rise, was accused of being a copy of the inferior Mr Selfridge.
