In A Period Piece

Jo Haughton -  - In A Period Piece

Want me to share a current obsession with you? Okay here it is: Poldark. It’s a BBC show, a period piece, and I love Demelza and Ross. They’re relationship is so flawed, but so complex, and fraught with real difficulty. And I love it. It’s not the cookie cutter period piece relationships we’ve been shown in the past. It’s not some Jane Austen fantasy. I like that it feels real – like two flawed people trying to love each other and hurting each other.

And of course, the beauty of Cornwall is everywhere – which just makes it more wonderful to watch. Anyway, it’s in the fourth season, and based on a book series that I will read shortly. But there you go – that’s my current popular culture obsession. If you don’t like it, well that’s okay – we all like different things.

I like to imagine I’m some sort of feminist heroine in a period piece film. Riding through an untarnished countryside with my gallant hero who isn’t my hero because I can save myself, and wearing the most beautiful gowns ever with amazing fabric…..and having all the comforts of modern plumbing and medicine and women’s liberation rights of course! Because if you’re going to have delusions, why not go for the really satisfying ones.
