Wonderful series - like a British Dead Poets Society, except more understated and focused on the adults, not the kids. Anybody who's ever taught will appreciate this one - they'll recognize every single character in that teachers' lounge - but really, this could be about any profession: Some co-workers become your best friends, others your worst enemies; some bosses are good to you, others get on your nerves. To Serve Them All My Days is about the twists and turns that life takes, and the importance of patience, honesty, and compassion in dealing with it all. Can't recommend this series enough.

I loved this series. The acting is superb, the story is engrossing and the characters are depicted as full human beings. I would highly recommend this production.
