The Other Side of the Dale
Gervase is a school inspector, who goes to take up his first post in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. There he meets with lots of exciting challenges, quirky colleagues and amusing kids. Or so he would have us believe.
Hmmmm...The James Herriot of schools? I think not. A series of frankly not very exciting anecdotes, and he makes even the beautiful Dales scenery seems commonplace. The gentle humour is so gentle you can hardly see it. Very twee, very nice.
