* UsefulNotes/BritishAccents: All over the place. The posh accents of the upper-class Bramwells and those in their social circle, the cockney accents of the patients and staff at the East End clinic (as well as the servants of the upper-class set), and Scotch Dr. Marsham.



* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: One episode is very typical, except it doesn't even feature Eleanor, who is off recuperating from her break-up.


[[caption-width-right:350:The series 1 cast.]]A television medical drama revolving around Doctor Eleanor Bramwell (Jemma Redgrave), a female doctor in Victorian England, running a clinic for the poor in London's East End. It seems to be standard costume-drama fare except for the subject matter: Period medical techniques are shown in some degree of detail, and Bramwell herself faces a good degree of opposition by virtue of her gender.

Added DiffLines:

* ExtraLongEpisode: The final season consists of two two-hour long movies.


* BabiesEverAfter: The series ends with Eleanor pregnant.



* LaterInstallmentWeirdness: The final season is vastly different from the others--only two 2-hour episodes, Eleanor's father and new stepmother vanish without explanation, while her behavior becomes foolish and irresponsible, culminating in her being fired from the Thrift, the hospital ''she'' started.

Added DiffLines:

* BritishBrevity: Four series. 7 episodes in the first, 8 in the second, 10 in the third, '''''2''''' in the fourth (two two hour movies, to be fair), for a grand total of 27 episodes, slightly more than '''''one''''' typical US TV season.

* ChristmasCake: Eleanor is implied to be this, by Victorian standards, at least.

Added DiffLines:

** Eleanor herself abruptly goes from doting fiancee to an unfaithful one.

Added DiffLines:

* DerailingLoveInterests: Marsham turns into this ''after'' he and Eleanor break up, with the revelation that he's been a regular user of brothels. This is someone we've seen be very loving and devoted to his wife, despite their SexlessMarriage and was quite lovy-dovey with Eleanor during their brief engagement, now acting completely remorseless about having cheated on them both.

Added DiffLines:

* ImAManICantHelpIt: Marsham's explanation as to why he sought out prostitutes--his wife stopped sleeping with him after the death of their son.


Added DiffLines:

* SexlessMarriage: Marsham and his wife. So grief-stricken after the death of their son that she couldn't bear to risk conceiving again.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenPedestal: Eleanor is very envious and admiring of the happy marriage of the friends she visits while recuperating from her break-up. She's devastated to find out that the husband has not only been cheating on his wife, he's seduced and impregnated their underage​ nanny.


Added DiffLines:

** While frustrated with her demented, elderly mother, a nurse refuses to place her in an asylum. Giving the conditions of such places at the time the series is set, her reluctance is understandable.


Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, Marsham is angry and bitter towards her after she cheats on him and leaves him for the other man--even though he's been visiting brothels for years and it's implied that he would have continued to do so after they married. Again, his behavior is acceptable, hers isn't.


Added DiffLines:

** Marsham himself. He pretty much [[SlutShaming slut shames]] her after she cheats on him and dumps him, but is utterly blase about his penchant for prostitutes.
