    The clue is in your comment.
    There is no rule that says am author must comply with history, in dramas or films.
    Even historical fiction books often contain a comment from the author explaining that some details have been changed in the cause of entertainment, or actual details are not available, etc.

    Perhaps it's only necessary for those that can't see past the colour of someone's skin. :rolleyes:

    Who cares as long as the acting is good. Perhaps you'd be happier that black people cast in Victorian (or earlier) period dramas only play slaves?


    "Racist critics, however, sharpened their knives to attack the casting on social media...."
    Didn't take them long. Poor sensitive (easily offended) little flowers.

    Whites do seem to make for more convincing blacks, with the right makeup, than a black trying appear as a white with makeup.

    Ok, maybe 48% then.Whatever it is, is greatly over representing the true situation and following a social engineering agenda. Perhaps French tv hasn't caught up, Himmy.

    See this is another problem, they say they want a 50% representation in the boardroom and politics TV etc, but the problem is when the population is 87.2% are white, it's not really feasible to have a 50% representation.

    Only 3% of the UK population is black,

    I'm all for equality, 1 should not trump the other

    Yes, these people are always making demands. That's all they're probably capable of. Trouble is, too many others take notice of them.

    Poor Himmy's smarties are beginning to wear off and he's losing it. Mask is definitely slipping. Almost time for Capt Necrosis to be on his way to Coventry.

    Are you on a trip of some sort, because it sure isn't reality. It's just the typical nonsense rambling of the typical deluded and offensive bigot of DIYnot.

    Do they? Please show us your reference for this source of mind-blowing information.

    Hmmm, 100% - 87.2% = 12.5%. So who are the other 9.5%, and what do they want? :rolleyes:

    You're having a laugh. You liked a bigoted deluded rambling of another racist poster, just in this thread alone. If I looked I'm confident I could find many more racist comments to which you have added your approval rating:

    Spurious and deluded allegations are the last resort of the deceitful.
    You're a proven and demonstrable racist. I'm amazed that you have the audacity to continue to post on here, let alone make any allegations of anyone.

    Harry Enfield made some funny Nelson Mandela sketches but was it wrong? In my opinion they were funny not because he had blacked up but because of the way he acted and the juxtaposition of context of those sketches.

    If a black actor can portray a person of different origin effectively (in comedy or not) then it shouldn't be frowned upon. I like historical dramas like The Tudors or Wolf Hall etc but I like accuracies too (admittedly a bit off free reign for drama is always needed to draw you in). So at first a black Anne Bowelyn does seem strange in a historical context but get over that first I'm sure it'll be a good watch.
