Storyline

In the lawless London of the 1750s, Henry Fielding, the humane novelist and magistrate, and his blind brother John, set up the Bow Street Runners, an embryonic police force with three other men who must be above corruption. They are bank-rolled by Lord Newcastle. Whilst dining at an inn run by pimp Jack Harris, word comes to the Fieldings that a prostitute called Ann Bell has been raped and half-killed at a nearby bath-house. It is vital that the criminal be found, not solely in the interests of justice but to prove that the Runners are worthwhile. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

The Fieldings speak of "Buckingham Palace," but that site was not property of King George II. It was Buckingham House, owned by the Duke of Buckingham until acquired by George III in 1761. See more »

Oops. Buckingham palace reference
27 February 2020 | by jeroldtolsonSee all my reviews

One of the "ladies" answering the question where she'll be in 5 years says "Buckingham palace." However, in the 1750s the site was known as Buckingham House.
