Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
While much time is spent on outdated protocols and silliness – with an alarming number of real-life ’Enry ’Igginses trying to mould a Stepford-like army of English ladies – thankfully the baffled, tongue-in-cheek responses from our self-confessed unladylike presenter makes it all rather fun. Stick around for some interesting era-relevant discussion from the likes of Debrett’s, with a modern, feminist viewpoint adding a nice counterbalance to the book-balancing of the first half. We might not need those side-saddles after all. Claire Winter
