A typical MD post

A new comedy starts on BBC2 TV tonight at 10.00pm called 'Motherland'.

In a positive preview in The Sunday Times Culture magazine Victoria Segal says of the main character who wants to bring up her children as she was

"That means being yelled at in a speeding car before being dumped on their grandmother's doorstep, just like they do in Swallows and Amazons."

It also made me think that there are no mention of any grandparents in the books, just aunts and uncles.


Except that the GA is grandparent's generation and did she not raise Molly and Cptn Flint which suggests Parent's death - not 100% certain
