Mrs. Forrester. Is she not the sweetest, dearest little thing!! I should like to go to her house and have tea and cookies with her, maybe blanch some lace, visit Bessie Dearest. I love her darling personality and her optimistic outlook on things.
Mrs. Forrester can often be found in the company of Miss Octavia Poll, and the other Cranford ladies. She is a widow, who adores her milk cow Bessie. "That cow is like a daughter to me." She is extremely loyal, and would do anything for her friends.
|Julia McKenzie as Mrs. Forrester, Cranford (2007)|
I love the circle of Cranford ladies. Their friendship is so sweet, and Mrs. Forrester is such a sweet addition to their group. She is very much a grandmotherly type of woman, which is something I love about her character.
I feel so sorry for her when poor Bessie gets stuck in the lye pit. My, but we all get a laugh though when she dresses her poor bald cow in pajamas. ;).

Mrs. Forrester: "Stripes! Very diminishing for the robust figure."
"Something has to be said! I am a woman of mild opinion, but I'm sure we do not wish to be dressed as revolutionaries! Mr. Johnson has had very wild ideas since he was made mayor!"
