One of the things I love about the books is that you have to know the history really well - Mantel doesn't spoon-feed you or give any exposition at all. It's one of the ways she makes the books seem...

The TV adaptation is a different beast to the books, but I'm enjoying it in its own right. Quite apart from the visual darkness,I think it's unusual in its quietness. Most scenes are still and...

Don't think it's a new woman, I think it's Florence newly promoted to detective and with her hair down. The new member of staff seems to be a bloke.

Sorry to see Camille go, but a lot of her raison...

There's nothing in the historical record to support or disprove it, so Mantel was free to have the characters do what she liked here. We know that Mary later married someone below her in rank and...

I find the books stunning for the way Mantel makes it 'now'. You're not reading history, you're in a world as real as the one you have your bodily existence in. It's 'now' then, not 'then'...

That was a wonderful series, and a wonderful ending. I'm happy for it not to be brought back - this concluded all the characters' stories one way or another.

I don't think Susan will hang. She...

I think Trixie will make a brilliant, if alarmingly glamorous, vicar's wife. Helen George plays her beautifully.

The little boy was superb, and the story so awful. The final bit about being sent...

The idea that everyone should be entrepreneurial is simply foolish. It's obvious that all businesses need people who will do a good job quietly, reliably and honestly, for a modest but liveable...

I assume there's some romance in the air for Foyle, at long last. Good - he can move up to London to be with Lady Academic, and be near Sam and the new baby!

I do like a happy ending.

I have no idea who the actress is - I don't watch EastEnders and I don't read tabloids. She was just a young woman who appeared on my screen and made me gasp with surprise at how very, very thin she...

It was widely thought that Louis XIII ('Louis the Chaste') was interested mainly in men. He had no known mistresses, and several male favourites. The writers went for making him camp from the very...

The plot was, of course, ludicrous. The idea that the king could be seduced by a woman is crazy - he might just end up under a table with d'Artagnan (how far would a Musketeer go for loyalty?).

You're right - spot on.

I do believe that a poll for 'Which Musketeer would you kick out of bed?' might be the only poll in DS history to get no votes at all.

Jonwo, this is true, and often it doesn't matter because the appearance of the character is not the most important thing about them. In this case, though, the books make clear, over and over again,...
