To many tantrums by Mary
Verified purchase
I started out really liking the series but it quickly became tiresome with such a self righteous, easily offended Mary who throws little fits over everything she doesn't like. It would have been better if they had given her a little control over herself. Martin is great in everything I've seen him in but his roll here is a man always apologizing for stuff that isn't his fault. I just found the show not that entertaining even though I hung in there almost to the end. Kept hoping it would get better because I really like Martin.

Season 1 was the best one. I continued to watch 2 and 3
Verified purchase
Season 1 was the best one. I continued to watch 2 and 3, however I became increasingly disappointed about some of the characters and their situations. In season 3 Mary, started to become a selfish and neurotic person. Their parenting skills are too lax which can give the wrong impression on children that it is okay to do whatever they want in the household. Also, they tolerate too much flighty individuals in their lives like Reuben. His interference in William and Mary's wedding was absolutely unfair and should have been dealt with accordingly. There were some things I admire about the series, their family structure flexibility and non-judgmental attitudes.

Like Martin Clunes
Verified purchase
I liked the series. Partly because I really like actor, Martin Clunes. I liked that these two people got together and found love, even in the midst of all the messy-ness of combined families. Also getting a glimpse of an undertaker's life and the life of a midwife and her occupation was really fun. The only thing I did not like was the fact that they didn't marry and didn't see the need for it. Unpopular opinion today, I realize, but the lack of seeing a need for real commitment is part of our problem.

She's a Mid-Wife and He is a Funeral Director
Verified purchase
We enjoyed the program ----- but Mary is such a difficult character to deal with, she is the "Doc Martin" is this series and William is the calmer and collected one who learns from his behavior. It starts off in a light tone ---- she brings people into the world as a mid-wife and he takes them to their final resting place as a funeral director ---- but it has some serious issues that must be dealt with and sometimes they overpower the viewer with their many complications. But do watch it --- good actors and a good supporting cast!

Great Acting, Love Martin, but Writing's a Tosser
Verified purchase
While I thought the premise of this show was fantastic (coupling an undertaker and midwife), and the acting first-rate, whoever wrote the part of Mary made her character SO easily offended, so downright mean to William that in Episode 5 one of her kids comments on how badly she treats him. It isn't uplifting to watch, because the characters are believable but, in the case of Mary, not endearing at all. Last episode wraps it up, and I doubt we will see more.

Disappointing finish after excellent beginning.
Verified purchase
Despite a great beginning and quality video the writers went for an emotionally neurotic woman.. Believable female lead for a total jerk.Yes, women do go emotional. This was too close to ugly to like 'Mary" .William is made martyr. UNHEALTHY FAMILY STYLE. Too much unaddressed neurosis to call series 3 'good entertainment'.

The other side of Martin
Verified purchase
This series is an excellent example of Martin Clunes diverse acting abilities. In direct contrast to his character in "Doc Martin", Clunes plays the role of a very compasionate man who has missed out on life and finally finds someone whom he wants to make up lost time with. This is a delightful portrayal of two people who fall in love but are constantly running into obstacles to happiness. It all comes together in Season 3, however, with a cute ending.

Worth it
Verified purchase
I bought the first two seasons of William & Mary and hadn't realized there was another one until someone mentioned it at a party last summer. As they also mentioned, it was not released in US formatting. I've been bugging my husband for a universal DVD player, and finally he bought me one as a Christmas present. Although this season turned out to be a little darker than the others, it's definitely worthwhile, and now that we have the player, we have the option of watching more quality series that just don't get to our shores.
