Description
As wily and rascally Uncle Silas, Albert Finney returned in 2003 to PBS's Masterpiece Theatre, in a second group of nostalgic sketches set in the English countryside in the early 1900s. Silas's love of alcohol and women make him a bad influence on his 10-year-old nephew Edward, who has come to the country to visit. As one acquaintance points out, "He is noisy, dirty, mischievous, and nothing but trouble." The roguish and ribald Silas enlivens his summer with a spot of matchmaking, posing for the sculptor Lady Hermoine, and infuriating the village policeman, among other farcical adventures. Episodes include "Shandy Lil," "The Race," "A Funny Thing," "Finger Wet, Finger Dry," and "A Happy Man." In 1963, Finney first beguiled American audiences in the movie version of the classic English novel Tom Jones. Jump ahead 40 years to this series, based on the stories by H.E. Bates. Portraying the title character, a charming elderly rogue, Finney seemed to see him as the man Tom Jones would have become.

"A very enjoyable rural romp."Daily Record

"A heartwarming comedy-drama."LATimes
