Return to Cranford - image gallery


Here are some images from the sequel to Cranford. We revisit Miss Matty and the ladies in the 2-part special which picked up where Cranford left off. While I had higher hopes for the sequel, it was still a worthwhile drama even though it didn't match up to the excellence of the original series. Return to Cranford introduced new characters including Jonathan Pryce, Celia Imrie, Lesley Sharp, Nicholas Le Prevost, Jodie Whittaker, Tom Hiddleston, Michelle Dockery, Matthew McNulty and Rory Kinnear.
Returning actors include: Judi Dench, Imelda Staunton, Julia Mackenzie, Deborah Findlay, Barbara Flynn, Claudie Blakley, Francesca Annis, Alex Etel, Emma Fielding, Jim Carter

  1. I felt exactly the same way. It lacked the spirit and humor of the first one. But still good. Sequels rarely please me.

  2. I just watched this wonderful series as I do every year and I loved it all over again. Elizabeth Gaskell's story of life in small-town England in the 1840's is layered with the most engaging, unforgettable characters. More than a period drama, this is a story of being human and sharing what these characters feel and experience...regret, loneliness, jealousy, sorrow, friendship, joy, love...it's all there in Cranford!
