  1. well “The Secret of Roan Inish” – Okay so she is a seal woman (selkie) in her brief appearance, but she also gets some working clothes that seem pretty authentic to the timeless time. The film has other appropriate to the time, too.

  2. Not a Frock Flick, but she’s in season 4 of Unforgotten, on Masterpiece, playing one of the suspects. She’s very good as a Deputy Chief Constable with a horrible mother.

      1. THANK YOU! Same here – I know her from somewhere! (Shout out to Unforgotten – such a great show, but no frocks.)

  3. On the comment about modern audiences not getting that 75% of women are named Mary.
    When I explain who is who pre-tudor, tudor and post-tudor to my mother (she always gets everyone, except Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, confused) I have to draw charts because of all the Marys, Katherines, Annes and Elizabeths.

    1. As a huge fan of 16th-c. history, I’m always amused / annoyed at how TV/movies feel they have to change the names so modern audiences aren’t confused!

    2. I’ve never understood the confusion, they were known as the 4 Marys, they were 4 different women with the same name………this is not difficult!
      Isn’t John Lynch her brother?

    1. I hadn’t thought of that! You’re right. I want the next Doctor to be a woman and to be a less traditionally pretty one. Lynch would do bery well with her strong, expressive face.

  4. I love Susan Lynch, she has such a handsome, interesting face, and that hair! There are two roles she was born to play. Jane Morris (if they ever do a biopic) and when I read The Essex Serpent, I always imagined her from the description of Cora. I think Keira Knightley is playing her in the movie, which I’m not mad about, but a younger Susan Lynch would have been perfection.

    PS. You didn’t mention The Secret of Roan Inish, set in the 1940s.

  5. I might have to give ‘From Hell’ a watch… Elizabeth Stride such a fascinating woman although I have a feeling her role will very small. I do cringe a little at the “whore” label though. No need to insult her in death when she suffered enough in life!

  6. It’s not period, but my favorite role of hers is in Waking Ned Devine. “If it weren’t for the pigs, I’d marry you tomorrow.” “I’ve been using fruity soaps, Maggie!”
