Adapted from a series of novels by Anthony Trollope, the Masterpiece Theatre production of The Barchester Chronicles features Donald Pleasence as Reverend Harding. Scandal taints the town of Barchester after the local church becomes the object of a scathing investigative report about the use of church funds.

Audience Reviews for Barchester Chronicles


Alan Rickman played Slope brilliantly in this BBC version of Barchester chronicles. It was a good story to begin with and the film followed it rather well making it a good story for all to watch.

Sabrina Sorensen

a little odd but still worth watching, Alan Rickman does a wonderful job with his character (as always) but I watched mainly for the presence of Doald Plesenace. He was a hell of an actor.
