  1. Heather, thank you so much for the link to the Gentleman Jack scripts! I’ve only had the quickest glance at one of them and am smitten all over again. I wasn’t ready for the level of detail in the script.

    “ANNE beams her biggest most disarming space-invading joyous smile”

    Can’t wait to spend more time reading these!

        • Oooh, they are awesome! Not only do they add insight to the characters (the descriptions of Ainsworth are priceless), they contain scenes that didn’t make the final cut of the show!

    • Oh god – so many highlights! I’m currently reading the script for episode 8 and it contains gems like “ANN takes her bonnet and gloves off. She looks out of the window, and then looks back into the room, and at the bed. The bed where she shared so many tender moments with ANNE LISTER. She’s thoughtful. Then she grabs her bonnet and gloves and sets off out of the room again.”

      Thanks for the link @heather!

  2. They’d rather pay a lobbyist to fight equal pay than straight up pay the women. Unbelievable
