Did You Know?


The episode won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (One Hour). See more »


The darkroom scene with Margaret and Tony is filled with technical problems. The film was never developed, yet Tony made a print from the portrait session they just completed. You develop a print in developer, then stop bath (not water), before fixing the print. The print must be washed in moving water to remove the fixer, or it will turn brown. See more »

Finally a good amount of development for margaret
17 December 2017 | by CeresAinsworthSee all my reviews

As said by some of the other reviews the first season didn't really develop her much besides the whole Peter Townsend debacle, This episode focuses mainly on the two choices she could make. Either marry a close friend that is well he seems a bit of an idiot and she would only marry him because she felt she needed to get married, or Antony who was a photographer, the way they played Antony in made him seem like the obvious choice and I can agree with that, his opening is amazing well done from the actor. Then we come to the scene where he takes her birthday portrait, he uses some clever tricks and manages to get an amazing picture(and yes the scene was a bit long but I felt that didn't ruin it just added to the scene how he would keep quiet but everything he said was to get that one perfect shot).
