    I’m a big fan of the tv series, especially as it is based on and filmed in a real place. And a lovely one – in a lovely part of England. The cast is fine and I love Dickens. Please don’t let anything happen to the dog.

    While I enjoy the TV series, I really enjoyed the views of the town on the show. Husband and I spent a pleasant pair of hours walking about in the town, on the Meadows, and especially the church grounds & sanctuary. Such a beautiful and historic spot. Planning to return for tea at the Orchard, hopefully in summer.
