Trivia

While filming the scene when Lady Dedlock tells Esther that she is her mother, Gillian Anderson said it was so hard the first time they shot it. They shot it outside, and had to keep pausing for passing airplanes, helicopters, bumblebees, and clouds passing across the sun. She said that the difficulty in keeping the emotion going while only getting to say a line or two at a time was dreadfully exhausting. It was so bad, they ended up re-filming it in a sound stage the next day. See more »

The Truth Revealed
14 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is about Esther and the news from Lady Dedlock that she is the lady's daughter. Of course, we've known this for some time. But, of course, the people that would be harmed by the news make their meeting a one time event. Tulkinghorn gets what he wants from the Sergeant, but we know that he is slime and won't keep his promise. But we are led to believe that the Sergeant may already know what is being done. Marvelous story.
