Continuing the popular and heart-warming BBC series, based on Flora Thompson’s memoir of life in late 19th century rural Oxfordshire.
This charming series set in a small hamlet and its neighbouring town sees the return of favourite characters such as Dorcas, Laura, the Pratts, Alf and Minnie – and a fond welcome home for Alf’s mother, Caroline.
Candleford has a new arrival in Gabriel Cochrane, the handsome and once wealthy owner of a large iron foundry – now bankrupt and homeless and looking for a fresh start. Dorcas offers him a job and a home, and the people of Candleford take him to their hearts. But will Gabriel manage to shake off the ghosts of his past and embrace a new life? And will Dorcas stop meddling in other people’s lives long enough to find happiness for herself?
Elsewhere, a heartbroken Ruby Pratt returns home to find Daniel settled in all too comfortably at the Stores; Emma is left reeling when financial disaster strikes; Alf and Minnie’s romance blossoms; and Twister tests Queenie’s patience to the limit with his most audacious money-making scheme yet.
