There are more dramas that speak of the woman named Ann and co-exist in a difficult period in her life in 1832 in Halifax - the cradle of the Industrial Revolution. This dramatic series offers a different look at Anne Leicester's home relationships with her family, her servants, her tenants, and her industrial opponents in general, who will use any dirty tricks they can drop. Now, Ann is trying to co-exist at the heart of her relationship with everyone so that she can complete her career in her life.
On the whole, though, the deliberately clashing elements of Gentleman Jack are the things that make it work. They successfully communicate just how unusual Lister was and how adamantly she insisted on being herself.
Lively, tongue-in-cheek at times and enormously playful, Gentleman Jack is an utter gem of British drama. You can't take your eyes off the central character, and you're drawn into her world and her heart with exquisite ease.
