1933 Lagonda 16-80

1933 Lagonda 16-80

After he was Dr. Who, but before he was “Dangerous” Davies, Peter Davison was Campion – in a delightful 1989 British series that we have been enjoying. He drives a car like this, only in bright red.

See:

for a brief synopsis of the series. We have watched three of the episodes, and are already lamenting that there are only eight. It started out slowly in the first episode, but we persevered, and were rewarded with a feast for the eyes of 1930’s England countryside and manor houses. The plots are interesting enough, albeit not terribly novel, and the occasional fisticuffs are so very “staged”, but this is a really fun show to watch. Highly recommended! ;->

    Thanks for the heads up! I added it to my watch list on Amazon. I bought Amazon prime about a year ago and it gives me this series for free! Yay for me! Have any others to recommend?

    Oh, my, do I? We are hooked on the 30’s and 40’s British dramas. We started out by watching “The Forsyte Saga”, and went from there. I’d have to think on the names of all of them, but just stroll through and watch a few to get a feel for which ones appeal to you. I think we watched this on Netflix. Did you find it on Amazon?

    My mom has several British CD’s. We will soon start going through the Campion
    ones again. I suggest the CD’s of Rosemary and Thyme, “The hit British series that combines glorious gardens with classic whodunits!” http://www.bbcamericashop.com/dvd/rosemary-and-thyme-the-complete-collection-14507.html Just can’t get enough of
    these two.
