I read recently that television is littered with the Lolita complex, daddy daughter combinations are everywhere. Yet we rarely see this in reverse the older wiser woman supported by the handsome young buck, it seems a little unfair. Whilst men age with grace their faces morphing into a well loved sofa last seen on an allotment, women freeze their faces into virtual rigour mortise desperate to avoid the graveyard shift. So it is just fantastic to see that over 8 million people tuned in to the new drama Cranford on BBC1 more bonnet buster than bodice ripper, strong roles with fantastic dialogue and not a ounce of botox in sight written by a women and acted by a who's who of our finest mature ladies. A rival was heard to say “and its not even written by Jane Austin” It is said that 2/3rds of the audience were over 55 well my girls love it and cannot wait for the next episode
