About this deal

Ratings hit an all-time low in 2004, and BBC bosses axed the show, but promised that they would bring back many of the cast from earlier series for a fantastic series finale. Golly consoles Jess, who does not want Duncan to leave, while Donald goes on the run from Molly after hitting her with a board ore. By joining TV Guide, you agree to our Terms of Use and acknowledge the data practices in our Privacy Policy. Golly meets Andrew Booth who wants to find his relatives in the Highlands, Archie and Lexie try to force Greg away. Family issues, financial debt and an unhappy girlfriend are just a few of the problems facing Archie MacDonald.

With the sixth season of wrapping up right around the same time as the fifth anniversary of its series premiere, fans of the series might be interested in checking out other shows with a similar vibe. Meg is offered a job on a boat cruise, and Ewan and Donald try to take care of the poachers themselves, while Isobel has too much to drink at Lucy's party.Duncan tries his pluck up the courage to ask Lexie to the ball, whilst Alan – an old flame of Katrina – arrives back in Glenbogle, with the aim to spite Archie and ruin the ball. Archie and Lexie are shocked at the response from the family at the announcement of their engagement. Molly finds out about Paul and plans to leave Glenbogle for a round-the-world trip with Andrew, upsetting Kilwillie. British ratings in the first five series were high, but lowered after the departure of several of the main characters (Archie, Hector, Lexie, Duncan and Katrina). Golly goes to retrieve a quaich for Molly from London when it is time for a MacDonald clan gathering.

Monarch combined comedy and drama in a skilful mix, never turning into a farce but able to turn to tragedy in the wink of an eye which I personally always found a little unpalatable. Molly clashes with Archie's godmother, Isobel who comes to give Archie a grant for a Wildlife Centre. She does not know that the new cook, Irene, has been the chef of a large Highland hotel, and that this particular recipe was one of her specialities. Archie and Stella prepare to sell derelict cottages to conman Stuart McIntosh who has his eye on Lexie.

As the previous Acorn released set was presented in identical fashion, one has to assume that 2Entertain has used exactly the same master tapes to produce these discs and has only authored different menus.

The majority of the programme was filmed on and around the Ardverikie Estate situated on the South-East bank of Loch Laggan.Stella sends Hector's dogs away to Kilwillie, while Lexie starts to think she doesn't belong at Glenbogle, Duncan starts campaigning and Golly wants to continue to work. Archie's older sister Lizzie turns up with her boyfriend, Gerald, and a group of massage therapists intent on turning Glenbogle into a healing centre. Lexie wonders whether she has what it takes to be Laird after Archie leaves Glenbogle to go mountain climbing in Nepal with his sister Lizzie in honour of their late father. The BBC box-set only featured a making-of show titled The Last Monarch, which was broadcast on BBC Scotland before the series finale on 23 October 2005. Andrew starts packing to move away from Glenbogle, and after a clash with Lady Dorothy, Ewan decides to join him.

With the help, and sometimes hinderance, of his family and faithful retainers he works to get the noble estate back on its feet . A draughty old pile in the Balmoral style, the laird had not only to contend with shoring up the place, but maintaining the cottages of the community who relied on Glenbogle for their living. Alastair Mackenzie went on from Monarch to fire up a career in films which in the succeeding three years since he left the show has been a little less than stellar.Captain America: Civil War (2016) First of all, it probably would have been better if I had seen Avengers: Age of Ultron before watching this, but no matter.
