Lovely, well paced, plotted, strong women, this show has a new headmistress who is strongly independent and is now in charge of the village school. Not quite the Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, this is set in Yorkshire, written by the wonderful Andrew Davies and I found it to be compelling entertainment! A good show for a lazy weekend binge watch.
