I enjoyed this series, too. I appreciated the great acting and that it was set in such an interesting time period. My only issue was that I found the on again/off again romantic relationship to be a little frustrating. I felt bad that Lister kept getting jerked around by Miss Walker. I also felt like Miss Walker snapped out of it rather abruptly and conveniently to tie everything up for the season finale.

I was confused.gif by that too!  Walker was a depressive zombie for 5-6 months.  After an "afternoon" of serious chit-chat w/her sister & a letter sent to Walker's relatives that she was coming home......in a matter of "weeks" she was cured!!!!!  Smiley LOL

According to historians, she & Walker argued alot after they got married.  Lister squandered Walker's fortune on the numerous renovations on Lister's estate, her coal company & travels which Walker never was happy about.  She hated traveling. 

Lister was a very poor business woman.

@Mz iMac  That’s very interesting about how she dealt with finances in their marriage. In early episodes, she was characterized as a kind of genius in terms of science, culture and money, but as the series progressed, she became more vulnerable, and her faults showed through. It seems that the necessity of being a responsible accountant was eclipsed by her desire to travel and own a lavish home.
