I HIGHLY recommend renting the BBC miniseries on Barchester Towers and then reading the novel. The miniseries is superb, one of the best and the novel becomes so alive in your mind after watching it on film.
Note: Alan Rickman is the evil Slope in the excellent MPT version of The Warden and Barchester Towers. JK Rowling tended to visualize specific actors as she wrote. This version is part of why Snape is Snape.
I really like the Barsetshire series and the Pallisers and have read bunches of the others.
For diehard fans, Angella Thirkell wrote about Trollopes' characters' descendants in her 30 or so Barsetshire novels from the late 20s to 1961.
Sorry. I can't type, and, since my eye surgery my vision is bad.
