The people, real and imagined, who are the Gentleman Jack story

Sally Wainwright's wonderful script very skilfully pulls together many real events and many real people. Not everyone who appears in GJ was exactly as portrayed, but they very often did exist. I've tried to find out a little bit about as many characters as I can; the lives of the major players are very well documented, the lives of others less so. I'm still looking.

I think the cast is brilliant, and have included a little about some of them as well, and how they are very often connected (not only in the way that Anne uses the word) with each other and Sally Wainwright.
