Dame Judi Dench and Imelda Staunton feature heavily on this Sunday's Masterpiece Classic, an adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's Cranford. The premise of this three-installment series: an 1840 version of McDreamy (Simon Woods, a.k.a. Mr. Bingley!) comes to town with new-fangled medical ideas, thereby putting the staunch-and-staid biddies of a small rural community in a tizzy (and sending some of the younger women into fits of rapture, I daresay.) The film appears to be an amalgamation of several of Gaskell's works, but all I know is, the Brits loved it when it aired there, so I'm looking forward to it.
Here's a preview from the PBS site.
