This series is loosely based on an unfinished novel by Jane Austen. In fact it sounds as thoeugh they ran out of her input at the end of the first episode. So I do not expect it to be quite the same as on of her novels but this week they went too far.

The heroine, Charlotte Heywood joined in a cricket march which I think Miss Austen would include in a novel but there was overarm bowling. The novel was probably started in 1817; overarm bowling was not sanctioned until 1835. Surelly they would have researched that?
