David Tennant is great
Love this show that came out around the world in 80 days and he plays a good part of it and can’t wait for the second the episode of this show and really cool
I loved listening to this interview regarding this last episode which expounded so much on her past and her feelings. She spoke almost as if she was being interviewed during that era yet I believe it is her reality of life today. That makes me realize how superficial many of our stars/celebrities present themselves and their lives. Ms. Madeley shows such humility, transparency and virtue. We think we have progressed to such openness and permissive to all, that we have lost innocence and boundaries that are for our virtue. CW
Keep it up Jace!!
One of top 5 and always excited for a new episode. I’m a PBS addict and British television fan so it checks a big box for me!!
