"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Girl of the Day - The Duchess of Duke Street (Gemma Jones)

We've just started watching the late 1970s BBC series The Duchess of Duke Street, which I had never heard of, but which looks to be very good -- sort of like Upstairs, Downstairs, but with a single main central character, Louisa Leyton, played by Gemma Jones.
