Storyline

Set in the 1830s, this black comedy centres on Helene, a woman who is washed ashore after her ship is wrecked off the English coast. There, she is courted by Edmund, a local pastor, and they soon get married under the understanding that Helene is still pure. However, she has a dark past that she must hide from him. When Helene moves into Edmund's home, she falls under the watchful eye of housekeeper Dorothy, who is more than a little involved in her master's life and quite obsessed with his dead first wife, Arabelle, to whom, in her opinion, Helene simply does not compare. While Helene battles to keep her past a secret, she must navigate Dorothy's devious scheming, her husband's harsh critique and a potential new love interest in the form of Dr. Foggerty.

One of the funniest shows ever
2 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are a fan of 19th Century Gothic movies (e.g., Rebecca, Jane Eyre) or Jane Austen period dramas you must see this show. Along with great writing and comedic acting, this show combines a wit and satire and love for the genre that is just wonderful. I can't recommend this show more highly. There were moments I laughed so loudly I thought my downstairs neighbor would come up to see if I was OK. Impeccably done with a deadpan humor that is unique and sidesplitting. As an American I am new to Julia Davis' writing AND acting, it is COMEDY GOLD. I also very much appreciate the feminine perspective. Every actor in this show deserves accolades but Rufus Jones' Dr. Foggerty deserves a special mention. The use of classic music in just the right amounts was also brilliant.
