The Barchester Chronicles 1982

The Barchester Chronicles: A dream cast brings Anthony Trollopes Barchester novels charmingly to life in this engaging production from the golden age of Masterpiece Theatre. Featuring Alan Rickman in his breakthrough role as the odious Obadiah Slope.The community of Barchester is shaken from its cosy complacency when a newspapers crusade against the Church of Englands practice of self-enrichment misfires. Overnight, Rev. Harding (Donald Pleasence) becomes a pawn in a battle between his younger daughters beau, John Bold, and his older daughters husband, Archdeacon Grantly (Nigel Hawthorne). Little do they realise that the worst is yet to come, until a regime change delivers Barchester into the hands of a most unholy trinity: the weak-willed Bishop Proudie, the domineering Mrs. Proudie, and the insufferable Rev. Obadiah Slope.
