The Sopranos not your cuppa? Check out Monarch of the Glen (DVD series)

22 Jan

The BBC television series Monarch of the Glen was photographed in the Scottish Highlands, and the actors who make up the extended family at the Glenbogle estate include standouts Susan Hampshire and Alistair McKenzie. For the McKenzies, family conflict is present, but on a kinder gentler level than that in the Sopranos family. British actors Richard Briers and Julian Fellowes who play the laird Hector and neighbor Kilwillie are personal favorites. This comedy drama provides entertainment, escape and armchair travel, for those of us who won’t be visiting the real Ardverikie Estate in Scotland soon.
