Article: Femnista [Jan/Feb 2013]

Posted 1 February, 2013 by Lianne in Writing / 2 Comments

Happy 1st of February and a Happy Friday to everyone! And here’s the first issue of Femnista for 2013 to kick off the brand new month =D

For this issue of Femnista I wrote on Millais Culpin & Ethel Bennett from BBC’s Casualty 1900s series. I love how their relationship gradually develops as they work together at the London Hospital but their connection has more or less been there from the start (Charity Wakefield & William Houston’s chemistry in this show is just xD). I think episode 3 from Casualty 1907 remains my favourite with these two–so much development! <3 Also, what's really cool about this couple is that they're based on real-life individuals (just like the rest of the characters on this show) who worked at the London Hospital and that these two really did fall in love (though it sounded like the latter happened away from the London Hospital when they were stationed at the British Hospital in Shanghai).

Anyways, this issue is a fantastic one covering romances from a wide range of different mediums (tv, movies, books) from an assortment of time periods. Be sure to check it out! =)

  1. Great job, Lianne! Enjoyed reading about something that normally I wouldn’t have thought of as “romantic” just because it’s set is a 1900’s hospital in a series that is “gritty.”

    Loved this issue. 🙂

    • Haha, yeah, especially with some of the stuff they have to deal with at the time it’s definitely not romantic but the gestures certainly were! 😀

      I’ve been so busy I haven’t been able to flip through it properly yet but I love all the couples featured and mentioned <3
