Trivia

James Steuart Barry (c.1789-1865) was born Margaret Ann Bulkley in Cork, Ireland, but lived as a man. He became an MD in 1812, joined the Army in 1813, and was posted to Cape Town, South Africa in 1816. For the next 10 years, he improved sanitation and water systems; improved conditions for enslaved people, prisoners, and the mentally ill; and provided a sanctuary for the leper population. He retired from the Army in 1859, and died of dysentery in London in 1865. Barry's birth sex became known only after his death; in a letter, his physician stated his "impression was that Dr Barry was a Hermaphrodite." See more »

Costume carelessness
9 February 2020 | by suepalmer1957See all my reviews

I like this show - a very modern slant on a 1920's times but I just cannot accept the costumes they dress the lead actress in. They are far too removed what women - even progressive women, would have worn in those days. It just removes the convincing layer of authenticity that is needed to maintain a theme. A pity that the budget doesn't stretch to dressing the cast correctly. Trousers would have been really frowned upon and if there were worn then they would have an Oxford Bag style - not tapered at the ankle and floating above the shoe. Please take a bit more care - if you want the show to be taken seriously.
