Episode 0.5 – Not Jane Austen
I (Courtney) incorrectly put Queen Victoria’s death in 1902. Queen Victoria actually died in 1901. Therefore, the Victorian period by its strictest definition is: 1837-1901.
Episode 3 – Mary Elizabeth Braddon (Part Two)
I (Courtney) referred to Stoker’s Dracula as a best-seller when, in fact, it was only a moderate success. A very similar novel which came out serially just prior to Dracula, Richard Marsh’s The Beetle, was in fact much more successful than Dracula–and that’s what I was actually thinking of when I made the comment.
