Dennis the Menace : " Mrs. Wilsooooon ! " ... :D

[Image: title.602.jpg]

An unusual story based on real events - a woman's husband dies, and she discovers he had 3 other wives and families. Sensitively told, with sympathetic characters, including the serial bigamist. Also slightly poignant as the lead actress (Ruth Wilson) who discovers all her late husband's marriages is the real-life grand-daughter of the actual widow (Alison Wilson).

Main "modern" date is 1963 (with WW2/1940s flashbacks and a brief 1966 postscript) which means there's a lot of witchcraft to disguise inappropriate later 60s and 70s cars with dummy/fake plates, particularly so that suffix plates are not seen. Plus it was filmed in Northern Ireland pretending to be London, so any local NI plates would look weird. Some screenplates are reused on several different cars.

Have redone ep1 and added eps 2 & 3 from scratch. Frustrating inability to find a good quality copy to work from - there seem to be 2 versions - one of which is letter-boxy and chops off lower part of pictures, the other being full height but fuzzy. Plus the cars are rarely properly focussed by the (sloppy/lazy??) camera techniques used and/or drift off focus quickly.

Biggish black saloon, come on dsl, it’s a Wolseley.

Black & maroon, Morris/Wolseley? Yes.

The tendency was for Wolseleys to be all black, and Morris to be duotone, but no doubt some smartie pants could find an exception.

Foreground cars, facing camera, no idea unless it’s an Austin Sixteen, crossing from east to west, Austin Cambridge.
