From the PBS Masterpiece Theatre series first aired far too many years ago. From Season 1, Episode 4, Part 2.

This remains one of my favourite Masterpiece Theatre offerings ever! Jemma Redgrave's Dr. Eleanor Bramwell displays many admirable qualities as she struggles to become a physician/surgeon in the male-dominated world of Victorian England, yet her Bramwell also shows some very human foibles, tool, giving the audience a more interesting, credible and sympathetic character. The re-creation of clinical scenes is also quite accurate (and occasionally not for the squeamish!).

SYNOPSIS :
Set in 1895, 'Bramwell' follows the fortunes of feisty, compassionate Dr. Eleanor Bramwell (JEMMA REDGRAVE, daughter of Corin Redgrave, and niece of Vanessa and Lynn) in her pursuit of public health and private amours in Victorian-era London. Eleanor's father Robert (DAVID CALDER) would like his daughter to join him in his respectable private practice, but Eleanor has plans of her own, which take her from the drawing rooms of the elite to the shocking deprivation of the slums of London's East End.

CAST :
Eleanor Bramwell . . . Jemma Redgrave
Robert Bramwell . . . David Calder

Written by Lucy Gannon
Directed by David Tucker and Laura Sims
Produced by Tim Whitby and Harriet Davison
