NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

Mrs Darcy, Episode Twenty-Two

… in which Wickham establishes his credentials as a rough cottager, is now up. I wanted a little scene to move Wickham into Rosings and I struggled for ages trying to think up a suitable hook. Then I started wondering about how he would explain away his smooth hands and it all fell into place. It’s essentially just one extended joke, but I think this episode is one of my favourites. The next one, on the other hand, is really quite filthy.

    I loved the Blackadder-y “These are a woman’s ’ands!”

    Thanks Rachel! Ah yes, that was the Tom Baker episode, wasn’t it?
