Emily Brent

Fact title Fact data
Played by
Miranda Richardson

A prudish Teddington spinster and passionate Anglican who has devoted her life to improving the lot of young women.

Emily’s commitment to Christ knows no limits and those who fail to meet her strict moral standards inevitably suffer the blunt end of her intractable beliefs.

Miranda Richardson on Emily...

"She starts out as this monstrous, bible reading, God fearing, knitting person and as time goes on you find out more about her…"

"I came to view knitting as her version of therapy that she doesn’t even know she needs because it’s when she knits that she confesses to people."
