An historical drama based on the life of trailblazer Anne Lister.


Anne Lister was a charismatic and passionate woman who had a mind for business and a willingness to buck society’s expectations. In the complex times of 1832 in Halifax, West Yorkshire, Anne Lister is determined to reverse the fate of her faded ancestral home of Shibden Hall by reopening the coal mines and marrying well. But she does not intend to marry a man.

She wants to marry "well," but not to a man? So I look it up: Historical drama. The series is based on the collected diaries of Lister, which contain over four million words and are written largely in secret code, documenting a lifetime of lesbian relationships.

Why didn't they just say so. So, has she found Misses Right yet?

Very well written and performed. Can't wait for season 2!
