I liked the occasional Fleabag-esque camera looks.

There seemed a lot happening but not drawing me in. Also it struck me early on that she seemed to be playing "Lord Flasheart if he was played by Richard E Grant".

But I'm happy to assume that this was all set up and all those brilliant actors are going to start chewing this great big Curly Wurly next week.

I liked this. It fair rattled along, and Ann Lister is an intriguing and likeable character.

I did find it slightly surreal, simply because the whole thing was filmed in places that I know quite well. They've used the real Shibden Hall, which is somewhere I've visited often since childhood and where I still take the Exlet (the grounds are now a lovely public park, and you can go round the house)

It looked a lovely house.

I pondered the slightly predatory nature of Ann - especially towards Miss Walker - but she did genuinely seem to like her too.

Recorded, not watched. So, worth a look, then, by the sound of it?

Gigi76 - 20 May 2019 14:20:58 (#7 of 36)

Yes, definitely. Lots of strong performances.

I was glad to hear O'Hooley and Tido got in on the whole thing. After all, they did the song a good few years ago now.

Marvellous costumes, too.

Tittilating tomboys in tafetta.

HouseOfLametta - 20 May 2019 21:22:53 (#14 of 36)

Wuthering twats.

Yeah, me too.

"Lord Flasheart if he was played by Richard E Grant"



Plz to be asking Jodie Whittaker to be play space alien doctor who in this style thanking you

JohnIlly - 26 May 2019 12:40:26 (#17 of 36)

Suranne Jones for the next Doctor!

Scripted by Sally Wainwright, of course.

carterbrandon - 26 May 2019 13:17:12 (#18 of 36)

She's already played the Tardis as 'The Doctor's Wife'; there are limits to how weird it should get.

Verdigris - 26 May 2019 20:57:34 (#19 of 36)

Lezzer time!

HouseOfLametta - 26 May 2019 21:20:45 (#20 of 36)

You can't touch this.
