Why so many Germans come to Cornwall

imageI was completely unaware of this, although it has been going on since the 1990s. It’s a sort of German Midsomer set in Cornwall. This Guardian article alerted me to the series, based on Rosamunde Pilcher’s novels.

All great news. One little thing grates. And this harks back to various private rants I let fly about “Cornwall with Caroline Quentin”.


Yes, Cornwall looks lovely when you have a film crew of ten who mess around for three days getting a great shot, and yes, Caroline looks great when someone is stood in front of her with one of those silver reflector things and its all done in the summer looking at the excruciatingly twee and nicey nicey bits exclusively. Cloying rubbish TV. See this much better rant from Lee Trewhala.
