DISCUSSION

Look, BBC, all we're asking is for handsome men in cravats and breeches. It's not that hard, alright? Make some "gritty" shit in your own time and stick it on BBC2, but I tell you this, when I relax on a Sunday evening, I expect a period drama, I expect there to be bonnets and I expect even the orphans and homeless people to look like they've had dirt and sweat sprayed onto them by the costume people.

It's not too much to ask, is it?
