Weekend Viewing.



My husband and I have just finished watching our latest DVDs. Monsignor Renard was a short series on t.v. a few years ago. Only four programmes were made and we were disappointed when it finished.
It stars John Thaw, who I think was a fantastic actor, I'm a great fan with the whole set of 'Morse' dvds on my dresser.
Set during World War 2, he plays a Catholic priest returning to his hometown at the same time that the Germans are occupying France.
Trying to build a relationship with his estranged brother and trying to provide solace for the towns people are his biggest tasks. Dominic Monaghon (who later starred in 'Lost') took the part of a very 'cocky' teenager who strayed once too often over the Germans boundaries, once arrested he relies on Monsignor Renard to save him ...

Excellent viewing.

I remember seeing these when they were shown on TV and agree they were excellent. I don't think they have ever been repeated but then they never seem to repeat the good programmes .........
