Description

It’s Episode 17 and if you, like the rest of the world, have fallen in love with Bridgerton - THIS EPISODE IS FOR YOU.


Join me as I take you on an in-depth tour of the first ever depiction of a Bridgerton style marriage drama series in the form of William Hogarth’s Marriage A-la-Mode.


This six part series has it all!!


Love, loss, money and betrayal!


It’s very messy with a very serious warning - when you marry for anything other than love, no good can come of it.


Let me introduce you to Hogarth’s characters of Earl Squander-field, the slippery Silver-tongue lawyer and the beautiful, yet not so innocent, Countess Squander-field!


This series is jam packed full of clues and symbols which tell the viewer the story behind the canvas. And I mean it when I say jam packed.


So, who is the innocent party? Are these two victims of their father’s plans or does this series stand as a warning to all who marry for money and not love?
