Then this weekend just gone, Sarah and I met up with my mum, and over a nice meal at Loch Fyne we were chatting about the film - as mum had also seen it during the week - and comparing thoughts and opinions. And one of the things I mentioned was that I was quite curious to see the 1970s drama Edward and Mrs Simpson, which told a part of the story covered by the film, but obviously from a different angle. I'd been a bit young to see it at the time, although I was well aware of it.
Got home today to find a package awaiting me from Amazon, that seemed DVD sized. Was it something I'd ordered and forgotten about? I have a lousy memory, so you never know...
Opened it. Guess what my mum had treated me to??? Seriously, a lovely surprise to come home to, and I look forward to watching it - seven episodes (nearly six hours) of BAFTA-winning quality drama.
(I note with interest that it's directed by Waris Hussein and features Patrick Troughton as Clement Attlee. Both points in its favour.)
