Lookout Point

Gentleman Jack

From the Bafta award winning writer Sally Wainwright comes a remarkable and unlikely love story based on the diaries of the Regency landowner Anne Lister.

Halifax, 1832. Charismatic, swashbuckling Anne Lister determines to transform the fate of her ancestral home Shibden Hall. To do this, she must re-open her coal mines and marry well. But Anne has no intention of marrying a man. True to her own nature, she plans to marry a woman, and embarks on an epic, unconventional love story.

Sally Wainwright’s award-winning series about the remarkable Anne Lister returns

Yorkshire, 1834. All eyes are on Anne Lister and Ann Walker as they set up home together at Shibden Hall as wife and wife, determined to combine their estates and become a power couple. Anne Lister’s entrepreneurial spirit frightens the locals as much as her unconventional love life and, with Halifax on the brink of revolution, her refusal to keep a low profile becomes provocative and dangerous.
