The satirical yet affectionate view of provincial life in Victorian England that Anthony Trollope presents in his novels is effectively conveyed in an outstanding BBC Radio dramatization of two novels from The Barchester Chronicles. Realistic sound effects and appropriate mood setting music support the superb performances of the cast members. In Dr. Thorne, John Wood gives Dr. Thorne a mellow, soft-spoken voice in keeping with the doctor’s understanding and sympathetic nature. In Framley Parsonage, David Haig portrays Mark Robarts--the young clergyman who risks professional and personal ruin through unwise association with a scoundrel--with a nice balance of naivety, misguided enthusiasm and contriteness. This fine introduction to Trollope’s novels will serve equally well as entertainment for those who know The Barchester Chronicles already. C.R.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
