CHRISTOPHER STEVENS on last night's TV: Starving peasants?These actors are sipping lattes, June 1, 2023
CHRISTOPHER STEVENS: The Gallow's Pole (BBC2) is loosely based on a Benjamin Myers book, which is loosely based on a tale of a gang of starving weavers at the start of the Industrial Revolution, who switched to forgery and counterfeiting. Not that any of the first three parts of this three-part series would have been expected, but to put it mildly, it took a long time to get going. The first five minutes featured a man dressed in a blood-drenched jacket, carrying a bag of blacksmith's accessories behind him, and defending off hallucinations of demons with stags' antlers.
