This mini-series is based on three of Elizabeth Gaskell's novellas and is brought to life by an all-star cast. The story follows the lives of the inhabitants of a northern market town in the mid 1800s. Amongst other things the arrival of a new doctor and the ever-encroaching railway provide the townsfolk with plenty to get excited about.
Cousin of Thomas Holbrook. A sort of roving ambassador for the Amazons and voluble disseminator of local news. Her peripatetic nature means she is never far from any unfolding incident. Mary Smith says of her: "We looked on her as a kind of prophetess, from the knack of foreseeing things before they came to pass – although she did not like to disturb her friends by telling them of her foreknowledge."
