Why the need to make up an extra story about cottaging? ITV can't seem to stop gratuitously inserting gay characters into period drama, and I say that as gay myself . . .

Although I watched the three seasons I always came away feeling somewhat disappointed, nay, frustrated by James Norton's wishy-washy insubstantial character compared to Robson Green's but at the same time felt a sense of loss when Norton left the show and wondered if the show would continue without him. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode without James Norton and must admit I didn't miss him at all. I look forward to seeing how Tom Brittney will fill the role and have no doubt he will bring his own thing to the show.
