Semester Break R&R with Dr Bramwell

For a little R&R this semester break I highly recommend you watch the excellent PBS Masterpiece Theatre series called simply 'Bramwell'.  Four seasons where produced for TV from 1995 to 1998. Here is Season 1, Episode 1, Part 1 to get you hooked! I have borrowed the following write up from the YouTube channel. Enjoy!
"Jemma Redgrave's Dr. Eleanor Bramwell displays many admirable qualities as she struggles to become a physician/surgeon in the male-dominated world of Victorian England, yet her Bramwell also shows some very human foibles, giving the audience a more interesting, credible and sympathetic character. The re-creation of clinical scenes is also quite accurate (and occasionally not for the squeamish!). Set in 1895, you are taken from the drawing rooms of the elite to the shocking deprivation of the slums of London's East End."
