FILM REVIEWS pages 45-51
Attention to detail has been vital throughout this drama series based on John Hadfield's enchanting book.
Costume has been particularly important. To create the appropriate raggedy feel of 1950s village cricketers - for the match featured in tonight's episode - costume designer Dany Everett borrowed whites from real players as well as scouring costumiers. With the local cricket club at Hillington in north Norfolk providing the perfect location, cast and crew were ready to film that most quintessential of English scenes.
In this third of four episodes, Jasper Pye is urgently needed for the annual village cricket match. But an unscheduled drinking bout threatens the day's play.
