Both instalments of the 2009 Christmas special of the BBC costume drama starring Judi Dench.
The two-part episode picks up the story in September 1844, a year since the small Cheshire market town celebrated the wedding of Sophy (Kimberley Nixon) and Dr Harrison (Simon Woods).
Miss Matty (Dench) knows only too well that faces will always come and go in Cranford, but for now she is happy that her brother Peter (Nicholas Le Prevost) is home from India and that Martha (Claudie Blakley) is enjoying her newfound motherhood.
Meanwhile, Lady Ludlow (Francesca Annis) is awaiting the return of her son Septimus (Rory Kinnear), and young Harry Gregson (Alex Etel) is set to begin his education at Shrewsbury.
