My Verdict

This is such a feel-good series, and I'm always excited when the new one is released. The characters are so great and well-rounded, that you really want to be friends with them. I'm really excited for the planned film version and I'm very curious about who will play who. My bets are on Helen Mirren as Elizabeth and Judy Dench as Joyce.

Review Award - 5/5
