Patchy, but funny parts. Worth sticking with.
27 April 2015 | by toriabbeyroadSee all my reviews

I am mainly writing this review to answer the review left by jan-cunningham.. Jessica Hynes, the writer of the programme, is a huge devotee of the history side of the suffragettes and the Pankhursts. She knows all the history, she supports it all and has probably read and sunk in more about it than you based on your appallingly insulting review! What she admits she has done in this sitcom is bring the basic era to life to a new generation some of whom may not have even heard of it, and if you actually watched the show you will see (as Jess has said herself in interviews) that the members are not actually part of the WSPU, they are their own version not affiliated. So you cannot accuse her of belittling the cause, when the characters are shown to be idiots but the cause and the actual WSPU are not! So lighten up - it's a sitcom, funny or not (erm a little patchy but i enjoyed it mostly), and it brought an era to peoples front rooms for a while. But to come online and write the kind of rubbish you wrote, i think you're the joke.
