City of Vice

Last night saw Channel 4 broadcast the first episode of a new series - City of Vice. The series stars the wonderful Ian McDiarmid as the novelist and magistrate Henry Fielding who, together with his brother and fellow magistrate John obtained a grant from Parliament allowing them to bring some law and order to the crime-ridden boroughs of Central London. The series brings these historical figures brilliantly to life and explores some exciting 1750s legal history. The first episode dealt with the subject of prostitution but the February issue of Attitude draws attention to the next episode which focuses on Molly Houses (cross dressing venues). This looks like a must view for readers of this blog. I'm sure the series will go down a storm if sold to international networks. Read a guide to the full series at:
