Movie Reviews

25 Years Later and Still Funny
Movie Mania | Southern Calfornia | 07/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those, like me, who bought the original series DVD box set, the producers have decided to be nice and release this special seperately. Thank-you!!!

For the most part, the gang is back. Penelope Keith, Peter Bowles and Angela Thorne return 25 years later for an hour Christmas special. It's Audrey and Richard's silver wedding anniversary and the couple prepare to celebrate in style. However, something is about to disturb life at the estate and Audrey, with the help of her old friend Marjorie, has to rescue 400 years of history. She also has to defend a community and save her marriage at the same time.

This show has not been shown on American TV (maybe this year on BBC America or PBS.) But if you cannot wait, buy the dvd! What is amazing that everyone is still around."
Like a Reunion of Dear Friends!
William G. Troiano | Eureka, California U.S.A. | 09/13/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This new episode was truly a delight! It was like a reunion of old friends who have not seen each other for years, but once reunited all time between seems to have vanished and it was only yesterday. The sets and use of the manor house interior were handled very well, like any home would change through the years. The actors lost none of their magic and had the same repoir as they had all those years ago. They handled the absense of Mrs. Poo and Bravenger extremely well and they were mentioned, although they had passed away. Those who already have the entire series appreciate that this episode has been made available by itself."

"I am so very excited to see this reunion special.
For longtime fans of this series it's the best present ever.
To new fans, well, watch the original series from the beginning and you'll soon understand why the rest of us are thrilled to see these characters once more.
Penelope Keith can do no wrong in my book!
You Are Cordially Invited to Celebrate the Silver Wedding An
K. A. Alphs | USA | 09/23/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

""You are cordially invited to celebrate the silver wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Richard DeVere." "To the Manor Born Siver Wedding Anniversary" takes us once again to the Grantleigh Estate, this time to celebrate the silver wedding anniversary of Richard DeVere and Audrey fforbes-Hamilton. As Richard and Audrey are making surprise party plans for each other, Richard's long kept secret comes out into the open.Where upon Audrey leaves him and Grantleigh Manor to return to "the lodge" which is now occupied by old school chum, Marjorie until things blow over. From here we have the classic comedy of Penelope Keith, Peter Bowles and Angela Thorne written brillantly by Peter Spence and directed by Gareth Gwenlyn. On a sad note many of the series character actors have passed on, John Rudling as Brabinger, Daphne Heard as Mrs. Polovicka, Micheal Bilton as Old Ned, and Anthony Sharp as Brigadier Lemington.
In the end true love does prevail Audrey and Richard style of course and the couple celebrate their silver wedding anniversary amongst family, friends and a new addition to the family, Bertie II."
