Product Overview

An all-star cast including Judi Dench, Michael Gambon, Eileen Atkins, Imelda Staunton and more come together in this BBC/Masterpiece Classic drama adapted from the works of Elizabeth Gaskell.

1842. Cranford, a market town in the North West of England, is a place governed by etiquette, custom and above all, an intricate network of ladies. For spinsters Deborah Jenkyns (Atkins), the arbiter of correctness in Cranford, and her demurring sister Matty (Dench), the town is a hub of intrigue where little goes unnoticed. Everyone -- from charming rogue Dr. Marshland to Mrs. Jamieson and her lap dog -- talks, and is talked about.

However, the town still has its secrets, despite the most vigilant eyes and ears. While it seems that life has always been conducted according to social rules, Cranford is on the cusp of change...
