"Rage dedicated to Naomi and her family from Monterie California. USA. Mom was at the supermarket looking for vegan Hagous now. Why was she such a such a thing a question you might well, ask, well, it was dad's birthday and dads is a quarter Scottish and with each passing year, he grows more, proud and sentimental, about the parts of the two Scottish and increasingly forgetful, that he is actually three quarters English this year. He wanted to celebrate his birthday by eating Haggas, which is the national dish of Scotland and by tradition is made out of sheep's innards minced with onion porridge, and suet, and cooked inside the sheep's stomach. It's a recipe that the kids Jeremy, and Jemima described as. Ooh. Although many people say, Haggas is delicious earlier in the year on the twenty fifth of January, when all true Scott, celebrate the birthday of their national poet, Robert burns by eating haggis Jemima decided to become vegan. She swore an oath in front of the family, never again to have meat milk, nor eggs. And she was especially solemn about not eating Haggas. This is a dark day. Declared dad's daughter has turned out to be a terrible disappointment to me in my middle age. Oh, don't be silly Nigel said, mom, she has a perfect, right? Not to eat meat if she doesn't want to. And besides the supermarket sells vegan hack is Jessica told me that it's truly scrumptious as it turned out when they tried the vegan Haggas that evening, even data agreed that it wasn't half bad. And when it came to his birthday, he was keen to have it again. So now, you know, why Liz or mama's we usually call her was pushing her trolley down the aisle, hunting for vegan Haggas? I hope they still sell it. She said to herself because it was not in the place where she remembered finding last time, then her long-sighted vision fell apart, a sign that reds special offer half price, vegan Haggas. Oh, yes. Mom cried out loud in a hurried towards the sign. She could spy just one vegan Haggas lying the bottom of the refrigerator, but just as she was swooping in on her pray another twenty came hurtling towards her from the other direction vigorously propelled by a demon. I'd lady who seemed oddly familiar. Mum. Quickened has step and reached the refrigerator seconds ahead of her rival just as fingers gripping the packaging. She felt a Jutta as the demonic lady with the rage. Rammed her truly out, mom winced. As a metal corner jolted into her thought by hands off that high guess commanded the other lady. Why I was hip, I resorted mom, and don't you know, you shoved your trillions my leg? I expect, I'll have an ugly bruise tomorrow. The demon lady made a grab for the haggis. Oh, no. You don't shouted mama, a reflex was faster and scooped it out of the ladies reached just in time. It's mine insisted the other lady, I need it for my son. He's vegan. You knew. Well, so is my daughter said, mom besides, there are lots of lovely things to choose from vegan cheese, vegan sausages, fecund chicken, this gusting, the lot of them remote the lady with a face that, demonstrated her feeling only the Huggies will do my husband's from Aberdeen now handed over show. Gaunt said, mama, all cool. The manager, though be video footage. You know. Yes. And it will show you ramming my thigh with your truly it will show. You stealing my Hagous at this point. Mom, let out a little off, come on. This rod is ridiculous. And don't know you from somewhere you should do. I am MRs Wilson the new chair of the parent teachers association at school. And if you don't hand over that Haggas. I'll have you blacklisted from the association. Great that will save me plenty of time and money. I made three hundred fifty cupcakes. Fear last sale. Mrs Wilson drew herself up for her. Parting words, you haven't heard the last of this, and marched off in the direction of the vegan cheese counter. That's evening. The vegan Haggas tasted, especially delicious mum told the story about MRs Wilson's trolley, rage, and Dodd said that mom also warrior worthy of the clans. But suppertime the following evening was not such a great success. Mum who is an excellent cook made vegetarian Bala as which was perfectly delicious, but Gemina was not hungry, and did not want to eat so much as a fork fool. What's wrong asked him? Other go on. You can tell me anything. It was horrible at school today said, Jemima? Oh, what she Wilson is claiming that you ruined his birthday because you stole his vegan Haggas stole, it exclaims mum. That's the most outrageous accusation, I've ever heard. He says you swiped it out of his mum shopping bag just as she was loading the car, what I didn't know such thing. He says MRs Wilson called the police about it. She's bluffing said mama, but just then the doorbell rang Jeremy went Swanson pulled out, mom, it's for you. The fuzzier here and so poor mom spent the next half hour giving her account of the trillion student to the police. I've got an awful bruise. Mom told them, I would show it to you. But it's on my thought I isn't there any video footage that will prove what happened right away? Fortunately said, PC Jill windmill, the camera was stolen the day before the incident. Oh, people awfully days commented. Mum. Yes. They'll Nick anything even a Haggas smug to the police officer of you don't believe the silly story. Do you asked mum? Well, it is your word against hers. The officer said reassuringly before adding, but I'll send my report over to the criminal investigation department are sergeant over. There is Scottish. He might have his own perspective on the case, by the way, what was the value of this Haggas roughly speaking, about three pounds, seventy five said, mom with a sigh wondering if they weren't any burglaries that needed investigating the trillion student just would not go away. All week school Gemina had to put up with comments like. What shall as a thief about, and don't leave your phone on the table when she's around and she comes from a criminal family, you know? And she says she Scottish, but she's really from Kent things came to a head. When Archie Wilson pushed Jemima Rover in the playing field. Jeremy rushed to his sister's aid and ponted his fist on arches knows, everyone involved was sent to see the head teacher who told them that the school had a zero tolerance policy on bullying and suspended Jeremy for two weeks. The head teacher, then cooled MRs Wilson to apologize profusely on the part of the school for the cut on her son's nose while Jeremy was off school. Uncle Jeff came over for dinner one evening. He congratulates Jeremy for punching. Archie Wilson on the nose and high five him though. Tutted and said there was never any need to resort violence. She cooked vegan shepherd's pie and the talk of the evening was what they should do about the endless conflict with MRs Wilson. I'll tell you what's said, on COO Jeff Lee that to me, only to fee and the Goshi, eight a peace settlement Jeff emails, MRs Wilson explaining that he was Liz's, brother-in-law, and suggesting that they meet at star bottoms coffee shop for a chat about how to clear up some recent misunderstandings. Mrs Wilson replied positively, but change the venue to her home at eleven AM, the following Tuesday's the Wilson's lived in a large townhouse with columns holding up the front portico an expensive German car was parked in the driveway. Jeff rang the doorbell he was clutching a peace, offering an extra large. Guess from famous gastronomic shop in London, it was said to be the prince of Agassi's, and it was not cheap. When the door opens. Jeff smiled, broadly, and said, good morning. Mrs Wilson, I am Jeff Brown. And I am the maid said the lady in front of him. Mrs Wilson's expect you in the trolling room. Jeff strode into the drawing room and greeted the actual MRs Wilson. She shook his hand without getting up from her chair and gestured for him to take a seat on the other side of the fireplace. But first, let me give you this little present said, Jeff handing over the Haggas eight. His of course furry kind of you said MRs Wilson examining the label, but I'm afraid that you must take it back with you. You see, we've recently followed my son's example and became a vegan how. Household. Oh, silly me exclaimed. Jeff. I quite forgot. It was a vegan. I guess, started this little contretemps. No, I wouldn't call the theft of a is a little contretemps. No responded, MRs Wilson Jeff sat down in his chair. He could feel the meeting was not flowing quite as he had planned. Yes. Well, this is the misunderstanding that I was hoping to clear up my sister-in-law would not steal anything. Let alone address if you thin Sealy believe that declared MRs Wilson, then I'm afraid that you do not know you'll sister-in-law as well as I do you only met a once as far as I know exclaim Jeff. Yes, but I summed up right away. And my good judgment was confirmed, soon after when her out of control children, mugged, my son off Chee in the school playground. Mugged ost. Jeff. He wanted to say, but that's ridiculous. But he knew that accumulation would not help his diplomatic efforts. Yes. Mugged said, MRs Wilson, my son was mugged by Huggies, thieving, hooligans Jeff heaved a sigh. Is there any way we can patch this up between our families? I say nothing against you'll side of the family said MRs Wilson, but I'm afraid that your brother has married into a bad lot. At this point, Jeff had to suppress lawf- his sister-in-law. Liz was one of the most harmless people he knew she was anything but a bad lot. Well said Jeff, thank you for revising me round if you'd like another chats, you have my Email address my secretary has it corrected MRs Wilson. Yes. Indeed said. Jeff. Uncle Jeff did not like to admit failure. But on this occasion, he had to report back to the family that he had not budged the formidable MRs Wilson mums said, oh, well, I won't be making cupcakes for the PTA again. But when the round Robin Email came round asking for contributions, she thought, I don't want to appear Petiot small-minded. I should keep the high ground and not let MRs Wilson bring me down to her level. A signature cupcake had swirl of butter cream and a sprinkling of hundreds and thousands on top. She spent the entire weekend in the kitchen baking one hundred fifty of them, which Jeremy and Jemima delivered to the school early on Monday morning at going home, time, Liz, cupcakes sold. Like hotcakes, or so. It seems.

"Castles and cathedrals vineyards and vistas Viking dedicated to bringing the traveler closer to the destination along the great rivers of Europe, offering a small ship experience with shore excursion included in every port. Learn more at Viking cruises dot com. There's a haunting brutality to the scene in the church where Ellison punches the pillar until her hands bleed. Give me for I've sinned. I have been trusting. Forgive me wrong. Love to my husband. High believed him. I lied to my son's forgive me. The being weeks. Week. Has this become a crisis of faith for Ellison, a righteous anger? Not just an Alec. But in God himself. Allison talks in memoir about the moment. When she sued her discovered, the whole life had been ally, and the author devastation of that feeling at the same time, she had been over many years thinking about her faith and wanting to be closer to Alex through her faith, and should she adopt it, and she talks about this sort of incredible piece that she got once she found faith in Tali. And so yes that moment in the church is a moment of utter devastation and of loss of faith in God as well as in him. And I think the choice to to to dedicate her life to God at the end of that episode. Israeli because she she wanted to she wanted to choose faith. She wanted to love someone or something she she couldn't live with the fact that this all been for nothing. And so I think she constructed a narrative, and she talked about this in her memoir were everything that happened with Alex would have happened for purpose to take her closer to God. And to give her that sort of rogue bottom, if you will that letter to open herself up to this kind of deeper more profound love with God, there's a horror like feeling to the scene where eight year old Douglas shows up set to Gerry and the pacemakers how do you do it Alison is finally found her equilibrium? Even joy and everything comes crashing down around her. How painful revelation is this for Alison that there's yet another one. I think is the worst betrayal of all because I think. The fact that Elizabeth was a wife off to her the other, two wives. Okay. They were going on at the same time. But I think Alison felt that once he'd found her he'd found the real wife and the other ones have been mistakes, and he had to be a good hustle father, and sort of keep sending money to them and keep going to visit them. But I think until she meets Elizabeth she thinks, but then he met me. And and you know, I was the final wife. So I think finding out that you'll three hour fool is devastating. And I mean, the things I couldn't put in like an Isabelle only lived five streets away. So yeah. And they got married in like, Luca registering? I it wasn't like feel the wives will lift in different Sissy. Well, Dorothy was obviously from India's he could cut it from India. But he met her in India. So you could kind of understand how that might have happened. And Gladys lived. In Southampton, which is quite a way from London. But yeah, Elizabeth was just a few streets away. And that he met her, you know, while he was a porter in the hospital, and she was a nurse and she believed he was a heart surgeon. I mean, the mind boggles how he got away with the list office. Incredible. I love the final scene between Allison and Dennis as they come to some sort of understanding why was it essential to bring back and his his character in give them this moment of clarity in the final installment. I was very moved when I met Dennis the real Dennis who's Ninety-seven. He's had this incredible life and quite late in his life. You know in his old old years to discover this whole other. Family to discover the truth. He held about his father went weren't true. And he just don't with us so with such dignity rarely and and such compassion. And so I just loved the real man, and then fell a real need to bring his character. Back to kind of give Allison that peace and to make her feel that it was okay. And also, I think to kind of remind the audience that. You know, this the story didn't go away for those other carry says we followed Alice away Truman, but you know, the other the other people have been shaken by this and have their own journey. And then of course, we leading towards the end where we see in real life all the family members come together. So it was kind of useful for rule as raisins we push into reality with the Wilson family reunion at the end of MRs Wilson seeing the legacy that Alec wrought with not only clarity. But with love whose idea was it to bring the real life Wilson's Ruth included into this. Final moment. I was always very keen to bring the store up to date. A because I love it. When I watch a film, and you been following characters. And then you see the real people, and I just really that. I just enjoy that ways. And then also because it's such a dog story. I felt like all the people I've met the family members were so generous, and such lovely people. And it was such a nice end to a dog. Story that it Hon ended in recriminations ended in love at ended in family in ended in forgiveness. And it's it's just a really simple moving way to just show the way that life goes on this incredibly large happy family has kind of sprung out of all of this. And yeah, I find it really moving. I love the dedication at the end as well. In memory of Gladys Dorothy, Allison and Lisbeth Wilson, why was it crucial that we end on this note on the four MRs Wilson's? I think I felt that. How much joy has come out from these families in seeing those those those children, and grandchildren and great, grandchildren. Now, obviously looking happy and healthy and not sort of traumatized by the story was really important. I also felt like those children have survived the story because of the sacrifice made by their mothers. And that those full women each in their own way. Did that absolute best to protect their children in love their children and make sure that those decisions Alec made either wittingly or unwittingly to complicate their lives and hurt those women so so badly that you know, they protect their children from that. And I felt like we needed to recognize that those women with a real of heroes of our story, Anna, Simon, thank you. So very much. Thank you. It was my pleasure.

"Uh-huh. I'm Jay sleigh Cobb. And you're listening to a special bonus episode of masterpiece studio after years of unexpected and unwelcome revelations about her secret agent husband's past Allison Wilson has finally committed herself to the truth. Yes. But also to a spiritual life as a nun, I Wilson vowed to live in chastity, imperfectly and Bedie's. Alec Wilson's elaborate romantic pursuits and extensive family have left Alison bereft multiple times over, but she finally feels empowered to expose the truth about her husband to their sons, you must decide yourselves who your father really was you should know that with God's help. I have forgiven him. I hope one day that you may be able to do the same series writer, Anna, Simon is a former journalist. Documentary filmmaker and that approach to factual details lends her series, MRs Wilson, a particularly deft touch she and series star and executive producer Ruth Wilson worked together to blur. The John run of the series. It's a domestic drama, espionage, thriller and family tragedy. All in one. I mean, one of the key aims of the show is how do you live with lies and I did fail. Ola women may different decisions consciously wrong consciously about how to do that Simon joins us to explore the challenges and choices behind telling personal true story like the Wilson family's on screen and to probe the boundaries of what still remains unknown about the mysterious Alexander Wilson. And this week we are joined by MRs Wilson writer, Simon welcome. Thank you. You came from the world of documentaries before a segue into screenwriting. How did your background serve you in terms of adapting this project? I think it was really helpful in the initial stages because it was quite for such the I did when I first got the job of writing this story. There was such a wealth of material, and I really wanted to find out exactly who Alexander Wilson walls. So I took quite a journalistic approach when I first sue the material I read as much as I could. And I went an interview to the family members. But then kind of in quite interesting way. I think actually won't side kind of gathered only information, I realized that was no one troops story. And so then fell liberated from tending the most sort of journalistically accurate version of the story. I sort of fake stone the emotional truth about us journey. And so it was kind of a combination of my background on my journalistic skills, married to the newest side of may have the drama writer and kind of combining both of those to hope for the come up with a screenplay that was both a kind of an emotional rollercoaster. Bolsa stock to the really key story points of of the true story. One of the things I love about MRs Wilson is how it blurs the lines between John rose. It's a romance. It's an espionage mystery. It's a family drama. It's a raw Chaman like reconstruction of the past were you conscious at all in terms of the development about John Russia. Are really wasn't conscious about Jones. I think I just thought this is nosing story. What is the best way to tell the story because it's a true story in people's lives. Don't follow particular patterns, people fall in love people have careers people have families, and we need is reflect those different sides of the story. My guiding light with always was I want the audience to fail that they were on Allison's shoulder. So that everything she everything discovering she's discovering at the same time. So that they would really implies with her. So we are on her journey. She's a detective, so I guess if anything I saw a detective story, but it kind of emotionally invested detective so Allison's the detective a husband is the the crime she's investigating if you like and so we're on that journey of investigation with her. Always very journey. But if it's unusual Royd say, that's the kind of your the I was looking for me. Does that decision then sort of informed the format of it to tell it in sort of a non linear? Absolutely. It did in full knit. I think with the flashbacks that was kind of one of the toughest things when I was writing is quite difficult with flashbacks to kind of always take the audience with you and not feel like your kind of stopping the present day story. So we had a kind of rule that we developed the every time you went to the past had to be to answer a question a mystery. So he sort of set little puzzles within it as to, you know, right? This will be when she remembers that she was showing the divorce papers this'll be the bit when she remembers she saw Dorothy at the house. So that we using her present and her memory to inform. The investigation the present day, and I love that because we do get to see certain scenes from multiple perspectives. When we go to the author's club. We see at one way with Allison. And when Dorothy tells her story later on we get hers version of that that he took out into the office Cup. We bumped into each other into each other thing that was come incidence. I. No. I don't know. What ching him Allison spying on him? Yes. It was falling into work waiting at lunch. Tracking his every move it happened. Because when I started talking to the family members people who were the same event like the funeral for example, remember the event slightly differently. And I think that's just so true in life that you kinda feel like you'll memory of an event is the truth, and Alex life seemed to be always about him playing a character in a different situation. So I wanted to kind of replicate what it was like for those women to just see if their point of view, but actually they hadn't seen the whole picture. And that we in the audience that point had seen more than the may themselves. Had there's a great moment in this week's episode where Allison uses iodine to uncover hidden message in the business card concealed within Alex wallet. Is this moment fused together? Spy tradecraft with the domestic secrets uncovered from household cleaners. There's absolutely I was felt with Allison that she is a character was a kind of wonderful fusion of the domestic, and this, you know, heightened world of intelligence, and of course, she met Alec in that world. And I think you know, if it was today, she may have gone on to be spy herself. Because she's obviously totally small woman the could undoubtedly had a career, but as was the way in those days once she got married and pregnant, she she gave up work, and so she watched him, and and she knew a lot of stuff, but she also was the housewife whose cleaning. And so yes, you're right. That moment was very much the time where she could put those two sides of her life together and solve a puzzle. I mean, it really does reinforce the notion of Allison is detective, but also just as equally she's proficient at forgery. She could be a master liar. Just like her husband was. It it seems as she goes on this journey that she's discovering elements of herself that might be more simpatico with Alec than she believed. Yeah. I mean, one of the key themes of the show is how do you live with lies and I did fail. The Ola women. How made different decisions consciously wrong consciously about how to do that. And Gladys the first wife, I think she was in a sort of St. of self denial because so much her married life. Alec wasn't there. And she must have suspected strongly that those at least another woman if not another family, so I feel that she sort of lied to herself. And then Dorothy the second wife played by Keeney hose made this seems to me extraordinary decision to to tell her some that his father had died because she just couldn't bear to have him in her life anymore. And so she sort of wholesale started lying to to sort of protect him from lies, which you know, is to your head starts get fried around this point. And you start thinking, you know, what would you do in that situation? And I think Alison was. Of torn because she was she was very she was a person with a huge amount of integrity an-, really Darren deep law for her husband and her sons and she wanted to do the best thing by both of them. And I guess it. Let down appall in all story of lying to protect them from the truth. And I do think it is almost an infection. Yeah. Allies rub off on her. And she spreads the as yes. Ans up slightly on a main in. In reality. We don't know how far Alison went to protect her sons from the truth. But we know that you know, she kept it all from them. And she showed at that responsibility particular on the funeral and all those scenes were apps taken from her memoir. And it was only when she handed this memoir over to them sort of several years later that she told him the trace because she just didn't want them to feel the sense of shame and disappointment that she felt before this next question.

"Going to sort of explore a bit more. You're now in rehearsals for these Sam goal directed Broadway. Production of King Lear where you play both the fool and cordelia. There's been a long debate between Shakespearean scholars about whether the roles of cordelia and the fool were written for the same actor to perform. How does the doubling here helped to serve the text? Yeah. It's really interesting. I mean, I think that it's not specified, obviously on the page. These two played by the same person. They never exist on the stage together, and as many references in the show itself that connect them the full is pining away off to cordelia when Cordilleras banished and at the end list says my pool fool is heightened when is lying dead in front of him having being hanged. There's lots of references, and you can pick them out within the peace. And I think it's just a really interesting double its that. Both the truth speakers or the both the people that try to tell the truth one. Does aunt very unsuccessfully. His daughter does very unsuccessfully, and she gets kicked out because of it the full being a man under sort of comic. Three riddles is able to sort of tell him truths. In a way that he considered except. And so it's it's a really interesting double to bring those two into focus. And I think it's quite moving because you see the relationship that once cordelia is gone. This of intimacy that you don't see in that first scene between Lear and cordelia is played out with the fool and Lear. And then when that is broken then cordelia comes back in and you see reconciliation, so I really hope that the sort of audience. Kind of connect the dots of bit. And they see the through line of these two characters. I mean, I'm not playing them as the same person. I'm not playing who Delia dressing up was the fool they are separate people. But I mean, there's something so much about this plan. So surreal, I think it's like Becket play. It's I get so mad, and everyone has many people in disguise playing other people not be oh being the Indus guys able to be their true selves. And so I think the something quite interesting in that as well. Perhaps a true self of cordelia comes out in the fool. Glenda Jackson is reprising. Her role is Lear. What is it like working with Glenda? She's familiar goal. And she's eighty two she's up the she's knows all her line. She's commanding the stage. She's funny and dry. And she's I mean, she's a the energy of that woman is truly inspiring and. You know, she's she's a very particularly. And I think that for me certainly playing the fool I sort of have to be on her wavelength and the two of us have to Spar, and I've really enjoyed the, and I can I can feel it it will become more as we get on stage, and we become free with each other. There's a real lovely language that we have. And I just I think she's amazing. And I think she's I what career she's hard to come back onto the stage after twenty five years of acting and to do King Lear. I mean, not strawberry. And for women at this. Danish. Do King Lear is amazing. So I'm really proud and grateful to be in that production watching her and working with her so closely alongside her. Finally, you said in an interview, quote, I'm a tragedy N in some way. What did you mean? Exactly. I mean, I did say that. Yeah. I think that's like something. I was saying this the diet. She I think it's an connects with my grandmother a bit is that. She was a woman he was had a an extraordinary sort of internal emotional unscathed that she never. Revealed to anyone she wrote it down in in her memoir, but she was someone that was sort of full of this emotion. And I think that I'm quite similar that I am not sort of why I've gone into acting as a way of expressing that stuff. That's inside me, and she did it through writing. And I have do it through acting. So don't if it's a tragedy, and as such, but it's just a search of I have a huge, emotional internal landscape. I think as most as a lot of people do, but I I sort of feel that I this an essential need for me to get out. And I do that through my work, and I'm lucky enough to have found an outlet for it. But I having you know studied, my grandmother read, all her passionate poems. And it was so extrordinary to me to understand the woman behind who. I knew I mean, I didn't she never saw in her. So to sort of see that she had listened side. Locked up was quite extraordinary to me and made sense of myself a bit Ruth Wilson. Thank you. So very much. Thank you.

"Really? And I and I I learned an awful lot. I was very lucky you leaped into the case with a star making turn as my favorite television characters sociopathic physicist Alice Morgan in Luther what did you make of the character initially and the critical and audience reaction to the character. Yeah. I mean when I first, but I thought go this side much fun with his cancer. She read like a female Hannibal Lecter. And I thought I'd never had any female count to that before. And and then those interests Elbert, I just watched the wire, and I was in love with him. Like, hey, while this is I think fate is saying I should do this job. And I just I think we'd never expected the show to be that successful. It was fun to do. And it was great. And what a great. Lost that first season and Indira Varma, Paul Mcgann, and also, and so we just wanted of fun with it. And then when it went out it was huge kind of real cult TV. And I think that dynamic of Alice, and Luther was really unusual complete unique and been seen on screen before. And I think that that's why people were really engaged in it. You know, they loved that cat and mouse and between men and women, and I I didn't ever expect. That would be the case to be totally honest. I just thought it'd be really fun to play and who gets to do this so eight years to to doing it. I love playing her. She's as she's gotten a conscience. So you can really have fun with that while the count burdened. Yeah. Burdened by all sorts of emotional drama, and she doesn't have it. Nothing sticks much to her does she's violent and she's bad. And she. Does bad things. But there's a kind of lightness to it, which I really is a real relief playing her widdly. Sounds somebody's strange. But it is she does some very very bad things in this fifth season of Luther especially you return to your role as as Alice with a trademark watcher earlier this year, what was it like stepping back in into that role and sort of fulfilling many fans in in Nate desire that Alice was in fact alive. Yeah, I think that you know, I felt really to the phones to bring her back because they love so much, and I love playing her then I think that she hadn't really been. Finished off, you know away. So it was a joy coming back. You grew up with three brothers yourself described tomboy. You've also said quote as an actress, particularly you're treated as an idiot. They handle you with kid gloves. But they also treat you like a fool how do you strike back against that? When it happens, professionally it's hard because it's you know, you get better at it. I think as you get older new you got more experience than people respect, you'll work more. So you'll you'll voice naturally become such of most significant in the room. But it is it's hard. You know, I think one of the things you have to do is pick you work carefully. Your work has has to kind of Stanford self, and I don't think it's just women by the way that men get treated like fools, as well, you know, actors get treated levels. I mean, it's is to some extent foolish profession, and we just have to put makeup and Gunston there and say lines and. You know, you you're encouraged to sort of act like a fool, you know? You're you're told you get, you know, even a car in the morning driven pseudo cash, and you don't know where you're going. You get out of the car, you're given a coffee at, you know, things you're just treated like you don't really have any brain cells. And that you don't have any of your own. You have any ability to get yourself with anything yourself, so some actors Dr acting like. But I think the resistance, I think it's about if you if you maintain and build a career is an a body of work, which is reflective of you know, of of your beliefs, and cares and thoughts and passions than people. Start listening to you. We'll have your voice will be stronger in the room, but it is hard. In his dark materials or playing MRs Coulter, whom you called, quote, the cesspit of moral filth will be get to see more of MRs Coulter in her golden monkey in the adept pation than in Phillip Pullman novels. Yes, we will the N Philip has given license for Jackson to develop that character a bit more and see more of her because she kind of in the book, she floats in and out and certainly book to she's not really present very much, and they really wanted to set her up an antagonist to Lyra. So is it two women. It's mother and daughter who are sort of sparring and chasing each other. And so they've given license objectives Delvin and she sought a fascinating character. She really is. She's in the books, you never really understand their get to that may still be the case in our series. But with certainly going

Golden ring towns Viking dedicated to bringing travelers closer to the real Russia along the waterways of the SARS offering a small ship experience with short excursion included in every port. Discover more at Viking cruises dot com. We meet Alex second wife. Former actress Dorothy Wilson play by Keeley Hawes. There's a beautiful moment of reversal on Dorothy, his doorstep and steps into gladys's role the wife knocking on the door of the other woman. Did you feel that sense in the scene as you were shooting it? Yes, that was always the intention with scene was that we can see that confrontation played out in a different way. And that it's again these women on these doorsteps, it sort of brutal and harsh reality and desperate. And that you see that. I don't even know if Alison in the moment were recognizes that she's become Gladys in some way. Mrs nosy. I just wouldn't I want to talk to you. Invites to my husband's feed, at least you can do to my questions, but that was food for the watcher the viewer. It was to sort of identify that this is repeating pattern. That's happened. And Alec has done this to all these women or he's created. This desperation all these women, and is unknowable, you know, he's an noble quantity that they have not yet sort of looking for two searching for some answers. What stops Allison from telling Dorothy son, Mike, the truth about his father that he didn't die at El Alamein in nineteen forty two when she runs into him and the road outside Dorothy house. I just think it's like with all the women that don't wanna destroy the image of the this man their father. I mean that was definitely my grandmother's running theme throughout her memoir was that she didn't want to destroy the image of their father. They didn't want to destroy their kind of memory and the love of their father and their faith in their father. So she in the same way the same reason why she kept the secret. I mean in reality. She didn't tell her sons the truth and till they were in their fifties. And they had families of their own and. And died way before and I think how reasoning for that was that they were in a place. They could understand they had distanced from it and could deal with it. But our and still had fond memories of him is very interesting each of the women and his wife think that the most of been true love or an a form of intimacy and love that was very connected between Alec in his various wives was because each of them wanted to maintain that son's image of him. And all of the sons all of the children of have very fond memories of him. They talk about him being a great father, someone that's totes wild stories was full of humor, and charisma and taught them great values of how to be a good human being and taught them faith. And so I think it's really fascinating that we want to get that across. And that came through the women as much as it came through. So there's the storytelling generally knew how to pick the Dalek, but it came through that desire to maintain for their sons, essentially this man was that they didn't destroy the image of their father. It's now two thousand nineteen a has there been any forward movement in terms of getting the foreign office to release? Alexander Wilson's file, which had been deemed security sensitive last year. No, not really we've been pestering them for a while. And we we passed them before the show, and they probably even more like reluctant now and other shows going out, but we'll keep going and this this haven't used that. We haven't tried yet. I am interested in finding out the real truth. But I I think also if we never do it's probably okay as well. I feel like the that's the whole point of the drama in a way that we may never know truth. Wait, never know the full truth. And we haven't got control over finding out. And that's life in Ireland, and how do you become one without and find acceptance with an what my grandmother Alison story in the dramas about about funding acceptance with the unknown. True or false as child you tried to sneak into Shepperton studios. That's true. I live on the corner. So we it was always exciting when you had so west alone or someone I think he was doing judge Dredd actually, and we try to sneak in dig it in and didn't see anything never saw a famous person ever. Even though I lived there for twenty years, your first major role was as the title character in Jane Eyre, Toby Stevens is Rochester nine months after leaving Lambda where you daunted at all at the time to be stepping into a role like Jane Eyre. Yeah. Yeah. Incredibly talented and very scared, and I hadn't done much camerawork, you know, literally, just come out of drama school and. I don't think it really hit me though. I'm someone that. I just plow into it from something's very scary. I don't really have time to think about just get on with the job until halfway through. And then I realized that she's a big deal. I remember having an interview session with those press. And I thought oh God this is actually quite big because she's a literary hero and heroine, and and it's been done a number times before and use 'em filling big shoes. So by had again, it was I kind of. I mean that whole experience was incredible. It was I was looked after by Evan BBC. And I was bitten in a blind panic all the way through I didn't really apartment much about it. And I just remember that like I would blush every I take because I was I one used to being looked at. And I kinda hated it. But it worked for John M I'm sure they use some of those takes. So I I it was. It was kind of deeply uncomfortable. Also, I just was so in a I was gonna blind panic zone.

"More and were able to discuss it actually more freely. Once she died was there any trepidation on your part or indeed your family's about adapting this very deeply personal story yet there was huge trepidation. But I think essentially every time I we talked about the story in any one of us in the family did. We keep getting amazing response from people. We never got bored of telling it people never got bored of hearing, it we kept finding out new things and strangely. It became kind of funny and absurd the story itself and not unified us as a family, those amazing positive energy that we'd found each other. Eventually and connected. A my dad found these Hof brothers and half sisters on that they shed things in common light creativity and storytelling and poetry. And and it suddenly was something positive to share and to celebrate. And I think that the story was so extraordinary. You know, it's just essentially Rulli good stories at any doubts. We had about telling it because it's a personal story kind of overshadowed by how extraordinary the story is. And that any when you told was fascinated by it, and for me in February and the family that was indication that you could tell as a drama, and it would work and that was worth telling a story. Because it's so extraordinary. You wouldn't believe if it was fiction. So I think there was an element of you have to tell the story at so mad, and we all felt quite comfortable in that way that would found each other with the best out of it was each other. There was no money to find over. There was nothing. The in those not respect that was going to be an issue. But yeah, it's deeply personal. It's putting ourselves out there at putting people on the screen in my family. It's my dad, and my uncle my grandmother, other people's parents. So there was concern to sort of get that right and to serve each and everyone story in a truthful and honest way. You told the guardian quote, it would actually be more exposing to make documentary. What did you mean by that exactly that there'd have to be inherent judgments made about Alec? Yeah. I think so well from my own point of view, I'd have to say on the screen as myself and talk about my relationship with my father, and my grandfather, and my grandmother which. I didn't really want to do. I think the something interesting in fiction, and certainly what's interesting about this story is my grandfather lived in fiction. My grandmother wrote this memoir, there's a there's a huge creative strand in my family. So the guide to making a drama out of it felt more apt in some way at felt like the perfect way to conceive and imagine who my grandfather was what is my grandmother wasn't her own experience. And I think in some ways fiction can get closer to the truth. You know, we can like imagine those scenes we can put them on the screen. We let the audience sort of go there and imagine what Alec was doing an India or the scenario between Allison Dorothy, we can put that on the screen. So I think I felt more comfortable in drama. And I thought it was just an incredible story. It would be a shame not to dramatize it. The British press had a lot of fun asking you how strange it was birth to your dad on screen was it as surrealist they're they're making it out to be a bit surreal. The whole thing was surreal. I mean, you know, costing Nigel and golden who you know, that my dad, and my uncle it was it was always a wit at always catch myself in moments thinking, this is so absurd. Every time. The clapperboard win though was MRs Wilson written on it and just knowing that's my family story being told was amazing. It was like, wow this actually happening, but was a completely absurd. And look how many people are working to create to tell the story this is absurd. And he's in the service hymns. Founded the country that was very patriotic was used to make Stanford national. I was wondering if I might say if you about my father's work. Well, he went to the foreign office. It's what is writing, of course, twenty unpublished novels. But yet the way is thing about the whole experience was play. My grandmother did feel quite out of forty in moments because I found out control in some of those scenes as you can see me my next really tie on finding it hard to breathe, and those an energy that was going through me that I had no control over, and I do feel you know, spiritual. That was kinda my grandmother flowing through me or have certainly holding something for her and walking in her shoes through the story. And I I do think that was quite profound, and I probably haven't processed it entirely yet. But it was an exhausting, and and very deeply off experience if not profound and a deep privilege, you know, getting to dig into. My grandmother in that way and understands her in that way. Yeah. So it was it was not just absurd website moments Pluto, so very spiritual. It's significant to me and likely to the work itself that the title here is MRs Wilson and not Alexander Wilson. Why was it? Vital that our perspective here is Allison's. Yeah. I mean, I always felt that when I told the story to people they were often very kind of excited and astonished by my grandfather, and he was often the talk of the, you know, any response about the peace. And the thing was that. We never had all the answers about him. He's always remained a man of mystery amongst the family has become a constructive. People's memories. We don't have any written piece about him. We have his own books, but we don't really have any personal account from him. And we had this really emotional beautifully written personal count from my grandmother, which was a blueprint of what it was like to be a woman left behind by this man woman who could never find out the truth. He was left in the unknown and had to kind of find some form of faith either in him or something else. And that for me was the most powerful part of the whole story. It was about the women that he had touched and had loved but also had betrayed and the families and the kind of consequences for the families generation -ly, and essentially he is a man of mystery. And we don't know. So let's leave it like that. There's an intensity to your performance here. That's very hard to watch. But harder to look away from there's the scene in the first episode where Allison is silently scrubbing the kitchen floor. You're no stranger to portraying grief on screen is it difficult to embody that sense of loss. And heartbreak. Yeah. I mean, anything you've got deep. Psychosis. An motions is really draining an exhausting, and I knew this job was going to be particularly hard because it was not just the deep sort of. Rivers of emotion that have to go through. But it was also shouldering the burden of these characters in this particular personal story and everyone else's family. All the other family members that I had to feel responsible for as well. And so I think there was that was probably added energy that was running through the show as well morning through the screen, but yet, it's hard work exhausting. And you know, that's why I go into other jobs which on so much like that. You know, I play all the characters. Like, I mean, I find Morgan incredibly easy to play widdly because she has no consciousness, and I and she hasn't burdened by set of suffering. Komen. Sage you. We won't arrive skit today. Nothing. Nothing much you type every word you add nothing you leave nothing. Nothing.

And this week we are joined by MRs Wilson star and executive producer Ruth Wilson. Welcome. Thank you. Mrs Wilson tells the story of your grandparents Allison and Alexander Wilson as early as two thousand twelve there were reports you are considering making a film based on their lives. What did it take to bring it to the screen? A lot of talking and patience. I think I mean, I I found out about the story. Ten fifteen years ago, the foot extensive it, and I've been talking to people Edison's industry about it. So it was one of those things that I never knew would actually become a reality. But eventually in the last three years, I suppose meeting with Ruth kenley. Let's who exact produced it alongside Neil Blair. And then of course, when an assignment was aboard the writer, and then the BBC green lit it. Then it became a reality and very quickly it sort of came to fruition. So willing the last three years, that's what became reality. But I've been talking to people about it. And I've been mentioning it and contemplating your idea just you needed more than just me and needed those other people to believe in it and think that it was a project, you know, worth while making. In looking back. What were those conversations like with your grandmother? How did she approach the subject of her life with Alec to you as a young woman? She never talked about it. I mean, I like I never knew him. He died way before I was born. I mean, I found a photo of him in my dad's chest of drawers, and I was so sneaking around, and I found this picture of this, man. I asked my dad who is this. And he said, oh, that's my dad, and that was all that was ever said, and those kind of energy, not my family that we just don't ask questions, and it was the norm that I only had three grandparents, and of course, when my grandmother gave us the first part of her memoir, she was still alive, and that was all about her life growing up and meeting Alec falling in love with him. And then finding out about his betrayal. So even then when we knew she was alive. There was still energy. You know? Assumption that we wouldn't Oskar questions says, very odd. That's a very British thing. I think it's also very generational thing that my dad had never also questions, and we to his grandchildren didn't feel we could either her memoir was kind of her answer. And that's what we heard then when she died. She gave us the second part of her memoir. And we also started finding out more about my grandfather.

Mrs Wilson, the British actress Ruth Wilson stars in the true story of her own grandmother who discovered that her marriage wasn't what she thought it was the first two episodes premiere on PBS is masterpiece Sunday night. And our critic at large Joan power says you may think you know, where the show is heading. But you don't it's a commonplace that we never really know other people not even those we love this idea gets pushed the limit in. Mrs Wilson, a new three part drama from PBS's masterpiece, starring the electric English. Actress Ruth Wilson who you may know from Luther in the affair. Based on the bizarre true story of her grandparents. Mrs Wilson is about a woman who discovers that. She didn't know what she didn't know about her husband. The story begins in nineteen sixty three. When Allison Wilson that's Ruth Wilson. Playing her own grandmother has been married for twenty two years to the older. Alec a novelist and ex m I six agent he's played by Iain Glen best known as the Colegio during your of more Mont on game of thrones. When Alex suddenly dropped dead of a heart attack, the shocked Alison through yourself into consoling their two sons, but as she makes the funeral preparations. She gets an even bigger shot a gray haired woman turns up at the front door claiming to be a MRs Gladys Wilson. Alex widow. Allison tells her to beat it, but Sandra struck she sets about disproving the women's claims the turns out to be harder than expected. And so as Alison digs deeper into Alex life the show itself. Cuts back and forth between her investigations and flashbacks to the couple's passed from the romance while working for British intelligence during World War Two through the ups and downs of their marital life in the process Allison discovers that even by the slippery standards of a professional spy, Alex identity was profoundly elusive. Here early on Alison goes to meet Alex hard smoking hindered. M I six played with stonewalling Rinus by funeral Shaw to find out the truth about Gladys Wilson visited outside Alex ex-wife. She thinks I still worried. I couldn't find the divorce papers anywhere. I was just hoping you might have a coffee. I thought you might have some sort of file on Alec. Nothing that can be shared with you. You must have vetted him before he joined the service. Suit up into whom he was writer. Tabu family, man. I. I was extremely important to us. There are so few men fluent in Arabic at the time. He showed me his divorce papers. He was an intelligence agent wouldn't have been difficult for him to forge a couple of documents. I wouldn't I two may not like that. Oh, Alison you poor. Dear. Because the great pleasure of MRs Wilson is that we're is surprised as Alison by each new revelation. I'll simply say that the story keeps us guessing who's the mysterious woman. Played by bodyguards sexy. Prime minister key Hawes who's lurking at Alex's funeral. Can we trust the Indian intelligence officer played by a new pump Kerr when he claims to have been Alexander back in the Raj and given Allison's lack of religious belief. What is the silver haired priest father, Timothy, that's Ian, mcelhinney keep turning up? Seeking the truth. Alison, groves crazier and more. Desperate a turn that plays right? Into Wilson's wheelhouse. As an actress with her large mouth and ferocious gays. She was born for characters who revel in emotional extremes, like your free, wheeling serial killer in Luther in fact Wilson is so good that director Richard laxed mixed the mistake filmmakers once made with Meryl Streep he lets his camera linger on her after she's already delivered the necessary emotion. Trying to wring out extra drops of her gift. This is one reason the whole show feels a few minutes too long that enduring problem of today's TV and that's not the only flaw like so many periods series. Mrs Wilson falls in love with its production design, which is to spot on to be true. If Alison stops on a street. She's going to be standing by poster emblematic of the year. Despite such quibbles. Mrs Wilson has just strong and surprising story that I wished right through it. It's unexpected end. Even as Allison learns or think, she learns about your husband's multifarious past the official secrets act prevents absolute confirmation. The show itself. Carries us in a direction. I never would have dreamed of at the beginning throughout the series. Allison is keen to believe that Alec truly was the good, man. She thought she knew. But her story has implications. Beyond circumstances. In the end. Mrs Wilson is about how we cope with the annot ability of other people and by extension, the alternate unknow ability of life. Do we simply ignore such uncertainty? Let our souls be devoured by it. Or do we like Alison search for some way to have faith? John powers reviewed the new PBS masterpiece series. Mrs Wilson which begins Sunday night.

So if we look at this in general, I don't think that this come on tire story, the company have been lobbying the government to to look after its interests because that the interests of the company, we're in the interest of the wider Canadian economy that so many jobs risks.

To help 'Sensitive in is this particularly damaging for the reputation of the current government because just intrude I would spoken so much about trying to clean up politics, and perhaps in the eyes of many voters.

He's been talking about his vision for the future. What is it? It doesn't just say there. It says it all over Mark zuckerberg's block. He's been writing up there saying that he wants to transform Facebook into and our use his words privacy focused platform, which will be in the trick. Because that's how they make their money. Facebook owns messenger, and what's up? The message encryption limits its ability to make much money on those particular platforms through targeted advertising. That's one of the facets of Facebook's business model. The social media giant's come under fire, though because of all the privacy scans that we have we now have market research came out yesterday saying they've lost fifteen million subscribers over in the US and twenty seventeen on a global. Scale fifty million doesn't sound like a lot. But it's six percent of the US population over the age of twelve which is key demographic. It's a lot of money his pre Patel. She's the chief executive of century tech. Facebook seems to be rewriting the become what they doing say marks Baggies looking strategy.

What we've seen is that. Now, he's making a me from what we what we've seen open messages, which can go viral on Facebook. And he say we're going to shift to direct messages and end to end encryption say, it's really really interesting because that's what they've got with with what's up, obviously. And now he's going to invest a lot more interface but messenger, and there are some obvious issues associated with this in terms of law enforcement tracking such messages, but it'd be reading see how this will unfold will there's also the question of whether this actually changes anything. Yes, it's great. If. You and I are having a message conversation and the conversation between the two of us is encrypted that might be fine. The Facebook still has all the data and Liam formation about us. And that was part of the problem. Yeah. What they're saying. Is that even they will be able to read the information say, that's what's really fascinating about this. And if you remember US congress had Mark Zuckerberg in last year, and they were talking to him about privacy, and how Facebook should be doing more. But actually, what this means the law enforcement, and for various organizations within government that you want these messages to track things like extremism. No, one can read these messages and their business models gays changes while because Facebook rely on targeted advertising, and that works by targeting large groups on micro, Microsoft, hang with APN messages and say with diamond messaging, it seems more difficult to be able to to advertise particular individuals, but I've been watching tencent, and we just because they've been doing really well with this actually ties on the Dartmouth.
