Well. I thought it was well acted, lively and funny. Hope it keeps up at this pace!

Didn't really enjoy it. Apart from that amazing house ... is that the National Trust one in Shropshire?

GrandmaKT Sun 19-May-19 22:17:11

Loved it! Left me with a smile on my face and looking forward to the next episode.

Tried to watch it; but carer arrives at 9 pm and is in and out and I always miss most of the 9 pm programmes - which just happen to be the ones I usually want to watch!

Loved it too Suranne Jones is just so good and perfect for the part.

I enjoyed it. We were playing name that actor....such a good cast.
DH thought it would be about a highwayman?!

seacliff Sun 19-May-19 22:29:37

I really enjoyed it, more than I expected to. What a great cast, and I loved the music too.

luluaugust Sun 19-May-19 22:33:27

Me to, thoroughly enjoyed it so nice to see some of the older actors.

I loved it too . Looking forward to next week . smile

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
Loved playing 'spot the actor' too.

Lilypops Sun 19-May-19 22:47:24

MiniMoon Sun 19-May-19 22:57:51

When we first saw Stephanie Cole DH and I both said, "Mrs Featherstone"!

Really enjoyed it, scenery and acting superb. I think the fact that it is a true story makes it more interesting.

MiniMoon Mon 20-May-19 00:01:49

I did enjoy the story. The actor spotting, just a sideline. I'm looking forward to the next episode.

It’s Shibden Hall in Halifax where she actually lived

Kittye Mon 20-May-19 01:03:33

I enjoyed it, great cast and beautiful scenery. Looking forward to next episode.

We loved the first episode last night. Particularly liked the music! We visited Shibden Hall last year and they explained to us what furniture had been moved to accommodate the film crew.its an interesting house even without Gentleman Jack as you can see where it was extended (400 years ago).

I loved the music too, reminded me of the Peaky Blinders somehow??? confused It looks like another winner for Sunday evenings.

Greyduster Mon 20-May-19 08:26:00

I enjoyed it. Love anything Suranne Jones is in. Seismic shift for Gemma Whelan from GOT to this. A very versatile actress, she also played Karen Matthews.

Auntieflo Mon 20-May-19 08:29:14

We both enjoyed it. Great for a Sunday night, and I was also 'spotting the actors', and loved the toe tapping music.

lemongrove Mon 20-May-19 08:33:51

I enjoyed it, especially as I grew up round there and walked past Shibden Hall.
The accents are all over the place ( although that doesn’t really matter) and the coach and horses she drove from Wibsey came to a halt ( from a breakneck pace) as if it was a car.
A good cast, all good actors and a cracking dialogue.

maryeliza54 Mon 20-May-19 08:42:04

I lived in Halifax from the age of 10 and frequently visited the Hall and the surrounding Park. The Shibden valley is lovely and lunch at the Shibden Mill Inn sitting outside is a lovely location.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the music.
Fills the Sunday night gap very well!

mosaicwarts Mon 20-May-19 09:22:52

I really enjoyed it, all except poor Brigg's leg close up!
