Julia back to make history; MEET THE CHRISTMAS STARS The Lark Rise To Candleford Christmas Special airs on BBC One on December 28.
Among the star-studded cast was Julia Sawalha, who made her name in cult children's TV show Press Gang and as Saffron in Absolutely Fabulous.
With Lark Rise returning for a second series, Julia is happy to be back in the role of post mistress Dorcas Lane.
"I just love doing costume drama and recreating history," she says. "It's a really beautiful series and people enjoy it. People stop me in the street to tell me how much they love the series, so you feel like you've done a worthwhile job."
To kick-start the second series, viewers will tune in to a late 19th century Christmas, replete with snow-filled scenes and carol singers. And for Dorcas, the new series brings the prospect of romance with new character James Rowland, played by Jason Merrells.
POST HASTE Julia Sawalha.
