    I’ve no doubt it is but you’re not taking into account the desire for remakes in the industry and the ‘I can make it the definitive version’ mentality in the business!

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor.
