The Lady's Abscess
25 August 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

A marked improvement from a disappointing opening episode. Although I think I failed to laugh even once at the second episode.

Andrew Scott guest stars as Charles Dickens, writer, social reformer and a hypocritical lecher who tries it on while in a drug induced haze with Caroline Lessing.

Dr Lessing meanwhile is annoyed by new enthusiastic volunteer Florence Nightingale who is a believer in fresh and being hygienic. He spots an opportunity to get rid of her when a wealthy patient has an abscess in her buttocks.

There are some moments which just failed to fly like when Dickens interrogates William on various characters in his books.
