Anybody watch Mrs. Wilson on PBS?

I wasn't gonna get started on it but I got caught up in it after a few minutes or so. Based on a real person.

Here's the blurb from the website:

Starring Ruth Wilson (Jane Eyre), Mrs. Wilson is a powerful three-part drama inspired by the memoir of Ms. Wilsonís grandmother and family history.

Set in 1940s and 1960s London and 1930s India, the series follows Alison Wilson, who thinks she is happily married until her husband, Alec, dies and a woman turns up on the doorstep claiming that she is the real Mrs. Wilson. Alison is determined to prove the validity of her own marriage Ė and Alecís love for her Ė but is instead led into a world of disturbing secrets.

11. "I wonder how people can pull off this type of life"

This happened in my family. One relative had two distinct families. Each did not know about the other until the end.. Some wanted to see the others "pedigree" and or proof of relations..
I was told it was a very strange "reunion" as everybody involved LOOKED related.. HA!
Would have loved to be a fly on the wall at party...

8. odd coincidence...

I didn't realize they were related but I found it amusing her real name is Wilson.

Thanks for the tip!

12. Ruth Wilson caused the show to be created

Here truth is stranger than fiction, an amazing real life story. Ruth promoted the production but if she hadnít someone else probably would have. I saw one woman with a similar story from the same time say war time secrecy provided a cover permitting men to have a separate life with another woman. She believes Mr Wilson and her family member were part of a fairly large number of men exploiting wartime secrecy. It gave them the perfect story to tell their wife. Honey I canít tell you where I go because I signed the national secrets act contract.

5. They could have done it all in one or two episodes.

I thought they dragged it out.
