    Since the show was based on the real life memoir of the author, who as a character was Laura, I think the show was limited in what it could portray and still stay linked to those memoirs.

    That's true! I should have thought about that.

    Thanks to both of you for responding.

    My pleasure, tinderbox. I think some folks don't know or don't remember that it came from the author's memoirs.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I agree Uncle David, this show is so well written. I thought tonight was just perfect.

    I hope they replay it when I can watch it or its on demand. I didn't see it. Doctor Who won out for the night, but I really want to watch this.
