Hello and welcome Diane! The BBC productions of Elizabeth R and Lillie are my very favourite, they're my ultimate comfort watch :)

Lillie is my ultimate girlie watch - ahh, the scene where Oscar trembles and says "One day, you and I will commit a great folly" ... of course, I like it because Peter Egan is such a crush of mine, but there you go. *Grin*

Greg, thank you so much! Childeric is actually the father of my MC, Clovis the First - first king of France, first Catholic king in Europe. I love the Tudors myself, but to have attempted a Tudor story seemed to me like asking for the Guitarist at the Back of the Bar (i.e., the reader who's also an expet on Tudor history who'll savage any choice any author makes in the name of historical fiction). To boot, Clovis is relatively untouched on this side of the pond, but a ripping good adventure, so I had to have him. As it happens, the L in DianeL is for Louise, which is one of the many derivitives of his name.

Sorry, I do get excited and go on a bit ... It's nice to meet you, LoobyG, sweetpotatoboy (I like sweet potatoes!), and Greg!

Thanks again - see you 'round the boards. Because, nope, I'm not feeling too lurk-y so far.
