Trivia

The red riding habit with the black and white trimmings that Natalie Dormer wears as Lady Worsley is as closely as possible identical to the one the real Lady Worsley is shown wearing in the portrait of her painted by Joshua Reynolds in 1775. It was based on the uniform of her husband's regiment, and the original is now kept at Harewood House. See more »

Scandalous production
18 August 2015 | by hosk4163See all my reviews

Adams 5905 is absolutely right on every count. Natalie Dormer can hack it as a bit part in East Enders, but like most of the female actors today has no grasp of the language and pronunciation of the well-bred aristocrat or even the upper middle class. Joanna Lumley she is not!

As to the script - who begins a sentence with "Myself" as the nominative singular? Only the barely educated. There were several words not in common usage at that time, but why should we be surprised at the slap-dash writing and direction by people who have little formal classical education in English, let alone simple grammar?

Altogether laughable
