RUTH WILSON TO PLAY HER VERY OWN GRANDMOTHER
Ruth Wilson will play her own grandmother
Meanwhile, their rival BBC is turning Alison Wilson memoirs into a three part period set mini television series MRS. WILSON which will see her very own granddaughter Ruth Wilson playing her. To be aired by Masterpiece in USA, it is set in 1940s, 1960s London and 1930s India, and follows Alison Wilson, who is happily married to her husband, a mystery writer. When he dies a woman shows up at her door, claiming that she too is Mrs. Wilson and was married to her husband. Turns out that other Mrs. Wilson wasn’t the only “other” Mrs. Wilson and in addition to learning about his multiple wives, Ruth Wilson’s grandmother learns her husband was also a spy!

  2. "Mrs Wilson" sounds good and very cool that her granddaughter is playing her! I'll watch for it next year on PBS.

  3. They all look good to me today, but that pink background they used in Britannia is ghastly. Then again, it does make one take notice, so maybe that was the point?

    1. I was wondering about it too! I guess they wanted it to jump straight at you, but I'd use the blue shade of her gown myself on it

    2. It just makes it look cheap. Not a great marketing move, I'd say. Blue would have been a much better option, I agree.

    3. it scored really well last night in UK, Sky's biggest ever premiere in seven years. I hear some like it, some deem it cheap, I will see next week and decide :) Sky hasn't disappointed me with their previous epic shows
