The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR TV WEEK -

An­drew Davies, famed for sex­ing up Jane Austen, had to use far less imag­i­na­tion when adapt­ing Sarah Wa­ters’ novel of ‘les­bian Vic­to­ri­ana’. Look out for Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch in an el­e­gantly filmed, in­creas­ingly racy tale that traces the re­la­tion­ship be­tween an oys­ter girl (Rachael Stir­ling) and a mu­sic hall per­former (Kee­ley Hawes, near left with Stir­ling). Con­cludes next Satur­day.
