TV Lark Rise To Candleford (BBC-1 2008-2011, Julia Sawalha, Olivia Hallinan) Published 3 years ago on August 16, 2016 Period drama Lark Rise To Candleford detailed life in the idyllically rural communities of Lark Rise and the more well to do Candleford in the late 19th century. The drama followed young Laura Timmins as she makes her way in life, moving from Lark Rise to Candleford to take a job with post mistress Dorcas Lane. At the end of the first series Zillah sadly passed away leaving an emotional hole at the heart of the Post Office. Meanwhile Sir Timothy and Lady Adelaide left Candleford to start a new life in London. Loves young dream turned sour for Laura and Philip after his actions caused her father, Robert Timmins, to be sacked from his job. On a happier note, everyone was delighted to discover that Dorcas would be staying at the Post Office when it transpired that Thomas never posted the deeds to the Post Office. New arrivals for season two included charming new hotelier, James Dowland, who arrives in town and ruffles a few feathers, and Minnie, a new addition to the Post Office in Candleford, she plays Dorcas’s rather incompetent maid. Filming took place in both Gloucestershire and Bristol. The books on which the series was based was published in 1945 and was based on Flora Thompson’s own early life. Bill Gallagher, who has adapted the series said, “the books are crammed so full of stories that you can just shake the pages and another one falls out. But Flora Thompson’s stories are very particular; they are anecdotal and personal and therefore need a dramatist’s imagination and narrative skills to take them from a beautifully evoked idea and to turn them into a fully fledged, hour-long drama.” The BBC built both the villages of Lark Rise and Candleford on farm land in Box and Neston Park in Wiltshire whilst the lord of the manor’s house was in reality Chavenage House in Gloucestershire. production details UK / BBC One / 39×60 minute episodes 1×75 minute episode / Broadcast 13 January 2008 – 13 February 2011 Creator: Bill Gallagher / Books: Flora Thompson / Music: Julian Knott / Producers: Grainne Marmion (season one) and Annie Tricklebank (season two) / Executive Producers: Susan Hogg and Bill Gallagher cast Olivia Hallinan as Laura Timmins Sarah Lancashire as Voice of adult Laura Julia Sawalha as Dorcas Lane Fergus Drysdale as Frank Timmins Martha Murdoch as Ethel Timmins Claudie Blakley as Emma Timmins John Dagleish as Alf Arless Thomas Rhys Jones as Edmund Timmins Mark Heap as Thomas Brown Karl Johnson as Twister Turrill Linda Bassett as Queenie Turrill Matilda Ziegler as Pearl Pratt Sophie Miles as Sally Arless Hope Yeomans as Lizzie Arless Brendan Coyle as Robert Timmins Victoria Hamilton as Ruby Pratt Sandy McDade as Margaret Brown Ruby Bentall as Minnie Mude (from season 2) Harry Miles as Archie Arless (2008-2010) Ben Aldridge as Daniel Parish (2010-2011) Edward Darnell-Hayes as Sydney (2010-2011) Jason Merrells as James Dowland (season 2) Olivia Grant as Lady Adelaide Midwinter (2008-2010) Stephen Marcus as Matthew Welby (2008) Ben Miles as Sir Timothy Midwinter (2008) Liz Smith as Zillah (2008) BBCBen MilesBill GallagherClaudie BlakleyJulia SawalhaMark HeapMatilda ZieglerOlivia HallinanSarah LancashireStephen MarcusTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes22 hours ago Strike Back: Season 7 Episode 5 (Cinemax Fri 22 Feb 2019) Episode 5: Following a high-speed jungle ambush in Myanmar, the suitcase nukes end up in the hands of Jean-Baptiste Zaza...
