The Coming and Going of Jenny Lee: Television Writing Done Right
In dealing with Jessica Raine’s departure, Heidi Thomas exceeds expectations yet again. I couldn’t have dreamt of a more apt exit for Jenny.
It is a lovely nod to the original source material. And more importantly, it remains faithful to the character’s core values while also allowing her to evolve as a human being. Of course, Jenny doesn’t leave midwifery to get married (although some of us did fear it!) Rather, her move to hospice care feels like a very natural progression. It had always been evident that Jenny had a penchant for working with the elderly.
The s1e3 arc with war veteran Joe Collett is still one of my all-time favourite CTM stories. Joe was so instrumental in helping Jenny embrace the East End! Jenny’s dedication to midwifery has always been for her desire to provide care above all else. She had recently witnessed the dehumanizing hospitalization of childbirth, meanwhile, she is hearing about this new hospice movement centred upon emotional support.
And that final scene. Astonishingly beautiful. And so wonderfully composed.

"… it’s Friday, I’m in love."
Even if it wasn’t Friday yet when I realized this, it sure feels good to finally be honest with myself. Even if it’s in the background for now.
"The character can’t die if the book is told in their point of view!!"
these two should get married !

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet
“Leo’s friendship is a major thing in my life. It’s a big relationship. I’ve known him almost twice as long as I’ve know Sam [her husband], but he’s never been a boyfriend, which makes it completely uncomplicated and very special. We met when we were very young and did a this incredible film [Titanic], which changed both our lives, but the best thing to come out of it was this friendship. We have grown up together.” - Kate
I am sorry for the non-book related post but its been 10 minutes and I am still laughing.
