The Gimletts were delightful Mrs G!  I recall Mrs G helping Demelza when she was ill with the morbid sore throat, and John Gimlett 'melting away' when demelza greeted Ross after he returned from being with Jeremy at Waterloo. 

It was odd watching the DVDs to see Jud and Prudie working at Nampara (I use the word working ... but that was often not the case!) as after I had read the books I wanted to meet the Gimletts!


 I agree, they were delightful!

Now in my opinion, Nampara would have fallen apart if it hadn't been for the faithful John and Jane Gimlett.  They were hard working, discreet, and always there when needed.

If Jud and Prudie had continued ruling over the kitchen with their slovenly ways, it would have been much harder for Demelza to grow into her role.

Ross did himself a favour when they were dismissed.

The Gimletts never seemed to complain - they even were in charge of the farm when Ross and Demelza took Bella and Henry to France.

I think they were treasures - not that I am biased or anything!!
