Gay friendly news from BBC today! They've change the name of their period set series Shibden Hall into GENTLEMAN JACK who will be played by Suranne Jones in the eight part series about a 19th century lady who lived like a man!

To restore it to its former glory, Anne must re-open her coal mines and marry well.

    1. Gentleman Jack starts shooting only next year, so I'm guessing it won't be airing before September 2018!
