Julia back to make history; MEET THE CHRISTMAS STARS The Lark Rise To Candleford Christmas Special airs on BBC One on December 28.

WHEN it comes to Sunday night telly, the schedule is usually filled with feel-good productions, designed to help the viewer relax. This year none did that so well as Lark Rise to Candleford.

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.
