Product Description

The Gentleman Jack DVD is the first complete season.

The Gentleman Jack season 1 DVD is set in the complex, changing world of 1832 in Halifax, West Yorkshire and is based on the true story of Anne Lister, a controversial woman who had a passion for life, a mind for business and bucked society’s expectations at every turn, most notably by taking a wife.  The story examines Lister’s (Foster) relationships with her family, servants, tenants and industrial rivals and, most importantly, would-be wife.

Based in historical fact, the real-life Anne Lister’s story was recorded in the four million words of her diaries, and the most intimate details of her life, once hidden in a secret code, have been decoded and revealed for the series.   Gentleman Jack co-stars: Sophie Rundle (Bodyguard, Peaky Blinders) as Ann Walker, the wealthy heiress on whom Anne Lister sets her sights as a prospective wife; Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones) as Anne Lister’s sister, Marian; Timothy West (Last Tango in Halifax) as Jeremy Lister, the sisters’ father; and Gemma Jones (Bridget Jones’s Diary) as Aunt Anne Lister.  Gentleman Jack is directed by Sally Wainwright, Sarah Harding (Vikings, Queer as Folk) and Jennifer Perrott (Doctor Who).

Note: All our DVDs are new Australian region 4 DVDs made for Australian DVD players.

  1. Such an eye opener

    Posted by Vicki Mallett on 25th Sep 2019

    I started watching this series on the plane as one of the box sets. I was taken by the dress and costume for the era for this most interesting woman. I found the series to be witty, charming, innocent and at times very hard. To think that this is a true story and it actually happened and to learn of the coded diaries and how they had to be interpreted to bring the series to life is nothing short of stunning! I have been itching to watch the series again and certainly can’t wait for series 2. Suranne Jones is exceptional and takes on this role with sass and class - an exceptional performance in what would have been a very challenging role - loved it.
