Wasn't Sr Julienne very accepting of an incestuous relationship between an elderly brother and sister in one of the earliest episodes, which even today would be considered totally unacceptable by...

It used to be compulsory for females working in public service jobs to give up their jobs when they got married. I'm not sure if that applied to nurses though. My aunt would have been a nurse in...

Not really. I think Sarah was probably very unhappy during her marriage due to the restraints of royal life and the hostility of palace officials and the media and flirted with other men as a...

They tried that with Upstairs Downstairs and it didn't go down that well. However, the only original character who appeared in that series was Rose. I would love to see an update of the Downton...

I liked the fact that all of the characters had a storyline last night. In the last series there was too much focus on Jenny, with the others just playing a bit part at times. However, I do miss...

I totally agree. I miss Rita and Mavis bickering, and Hilda's 'muriels', and Vera being convinced she was related to the royal family and calling her house 'The Old Rectory'.

Now it's all murder and...

In fairness, if someone is terminally ill and talking about it publicly helps them to cope, or garners publicity for cancer research, there is nothing wrong with that. Neither is there anything wrong...

Very sad news. She was one of the real 'greats' of Coronation Street, and had been there since the days when it was a gentler and more realistic drama. There are very few actors left from those days...
