"A first class production, beautifully acted "
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This very enjoyable rendering of surely Anthony Trollope's best work combines superb acting, particularly of Alan Rickman as Obadiah Slope, with lavish production. It is blackly satirical at times, and also very funny. Highly recommended.


The acclaimed 1982 BBC adaptation of Anthony Trollope's novels. The community of Barchester is shaken from its cosy complacency when a newspaper's crusade against the Church of England's practice of self-enrichment misfires. Overnight, Rev. Harding (Donald Pleasence) becomes a pawn in a battle between his younger daughter's beau, John Bold (David Gwillim), and his older daughter's husband. Little do they realise that the worst is yet to come, until a regime change delivers Barchester into the hands of a most unholy trinity: the weak-willed Bishop Proudie (Clive Swift), the domineering Mrs. Proudie (Geraldine McEwan) and the insufferable Rev. Obadiah Slope (Alan Rickman).
