Gentleman Jack is a historical drama television series created by Sally Wainwright.[b] Set in the 1830s in Yorkshire, it stars Suranne Jones as landowner and industrialist Anne Lister. The series is based on the collected diaries of Lister, which contain over four million words and are written largely in secret code, documenting a lifetime of lesbian relationships.[4][5]

Gentleman Jack is a BBC One and HBO co-production.[6] The series premiered on 22 April 2019 in the United States,[7] and on 19 May 2019 in the United Kingdom.[8] It was renewed by the BBC on 23 May 2019 for a second series,[9] which was shown on BBC One from 10 April[10] to 29 May 2022 and on HBO from 25 April to 13 June 2022.[11] In July 2022, HBO cancelled the programme after two series.

Background and production

In November 2016, screenwriter Sally Wainwright was awarded a £30,000 screenwriting fellowship grant from the charitable organisation the Wellcome Trust, in partnership with Film4 and the British Film Institute.[30] Wainwright disclosed to the media that she was writing a drama series about the landowner, industrialist, and intellectual Anne Lister and would use the grant to further her research.[31] In March 2017, it was announced that BBC One and American network HBO had commissioned the eight-part series, provisionally titled "Shibden Hall", after Lister's ancestral home of the same name.[4] Wainwright was announced as the series' director, and executive producer together with Piers Wenger and Faith Penhale.[4] A native of Yorkshire, Wainwright had grown up in the environs of Shibden Hall and had had ambitions to write a drama based on Anne Lister for over 20 years.[4][32] She described Lister as "a gift to a dramatist" and "one of the most exuberant, thrilling and brilliant women in British history".[4]

In July 2017, the series was renamed Gentleman Jack and Suranne Jones was announced in the protagonist role of Lister.[33] Wainwright, who had previously worked with Jones in Scott & Bailey and Unforgiven,[34] deemed her capable of embodying the "boldness, subtlety, energy and humour" required to depict Lister.[35] In April 2018, Sophie Rundle joined the production as Ann Walker, Lister's intended spouse.[36]

In November 2018, Katherine Kelly was cast in the role of Ann Walker's sister, Elizabeth Sutherland, Sofie Gråbøl as Queen Marie of Denmark and Tom Lewis as Thomas Sowden.[37]

HBO cancelled the programme on 7 July 2022, after two series.[38]

Music

The theme music was composed by Murray Gold.[39] The series' ending theme song is "Gentleman Jack", written and performed by Yorkshire folk music duo O'Hooley & Tidow and first released in 2012.[1][40]

Filming

Location shooting took place in Yorkshire and surrounding areas, including Shibden Hall as Anne Lister's home and Sutton Park, Yorkshire as Ann Walker's home.[41][42]

The final scenes of series one were shot in Goodramgate and Precentor's Court in York.[43] Three other locations in York – Duncombe Place, Minster Yard and Holy Trinity Church – were used earlier in the series.[44]

Production on series two, delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resumed in October 2020.[45] It then shut down again and resumed filming in the summer of 2021. Suranne Jones confirmed that filming for the second series had concluded on 4 October 2021.[46] Historically there were a number of coal mining pits in the Shibden Valley in Lister's time; one still standing, located close to Bare Head Tunnel, was used for filming in episode six.[47]

Release

BBC One released a teaser trailer for series one on 8 March 2019,[48] followed by the first official trailer on 18 March 2019.[49][50] The first trailer from HBO was also released on 18 March 2019.[51]

Broadcast

Gentleman Jack premiered first in the US on 22 April 2019;[7][52][53] followed by the UK premiere on 19 May 2019.[8][54] The first series premiered in Australia on Fox Showcase on 19 May 2019.[55]

Reception

The Hollywood Reporter described Gentleman Jack as a "funny, smart, and touching story" which at times has the main character talk to the camera to explain her inner thoughts, allowing aspects of Lister's diary to be used.[56] The Guardian's review said "Suranne Jones rocks Halifax as the first modern lesbian...Anne Lister's diary [becomes] a thrilling coal-town romp that flirts with parody, so maybe it's Queer Brontë."[57] Variety pointed up the drama's uniqueness: "Wainwright makes an intriguing choice that sets up a decidedly adult romance about devotion, trust and partnership that is rare for TV in general, let alone for lesbian characters in a period piece."[58]At the time of cancellation, it was noted that the second season registered as HBO's lowest-rated current original series.[38]

After it was known that the programme would be discontinued after the second series, The Guardian published reactions by many people who described how it had powerfully affected their lives for the good.[59]
