In tonight's episode I quite expected Mrs Miniver to walk in! The flower show scene was lifted straight from the aforementioned film - talk of plagiarism.
Apart from that I do enjoy the series.

with talk of plagiarism. I'm quite sure nothing was further from the producers' minds.

You may be quite sure but the whole thing was far too similar, shall I rephrase myself and say 'what a coincidence the storyline seemed to remind me, practically word for word, of a similar scene I saw in a film I can’t quite remember the title of’

They Googled "Flower Show" and viewed a great many Clips.

Of course, none were copied but, as you can be pretty sure that none of the Production Team had been a million miles from a Flower Show, those Clips formed the basis of their Knowledge Base!

I'm glad someone agrees with me, I was beginning to think I had imagined it!
