Cranford, the BBC mini-series aired the first of the three episodes last Sunday, May 4th. The 2nd episode will air on May 11 (Mother's Day), and the last one will be on the 18th on Masterpiece.

As previously posted here, Judi Dench, Philip Glenister, Francesca Annis and Michael Gambon star in Elizabeth Gaskell's five-part period drama which follows the small absurdities and major tragedies in the lives of the people of Cranford.

Some P&P alumni stars (P&P '05's Judi Dench, Simon Woods, and Claudie Blakley. Also, Julia Sawalha [Lydia Bennet] from P&P '95 mini-series) are in this period drama.
The cast list also includes Francesca Annis, Philip Glenister, Lesley Manville, Julia McKenzie, Imelda Staunton, and Greg Wise.

Recently, Cranford was nominated with 7 BAFTA and won at least one award for Eileen Atkins for Best Actress.

The Region 1 DVD for Cranford will be available May 20th.
