Life in Squares

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Television -

A few weeks back, Vic­to­ria Coren Mitchell pre­sented an ex­cel­lent doc­u­men­tary se­ries about bo­hemian so­ci­ety, and fea­tur­ing promi­nently in it were mem­bers of the Bloomsbury group. Now, hot on that show’s heels, comes this new, three-part drama fo­cus­ing on the lives and loves of this ex­tra­or­di­nary col­lec­tion of artis­tic folk. The story be­gins in 1905, when the Stephen sis­ters are ral­ly­ing against the stuffy con­fines of post-Vic­to­rian Eng­land. Be­fore long, their friend­ships with rad­i­cal thinkers such as Dun­can Grant and Lyt­ton Stra­chey help them achieve a mea­sure of free­dom.

De­fy­ing con­ven­tion: Phoebe Fox stars.
