“They come out of it as they come out of their carriages - fabulously. Read on for the verdict on last night’s TV.

“I don’t think the people who are featured are being misrepresented. Or that any of them – the families of Nangirl and Margaret, Dolores, her sister, any of the others – would be unhappy about how they are portrayed. Why would they?
