Gentleman Jack is a historical drama about Anne Lister's life in 18th Century Yorkshire. It is based on the extensive collection of diaries she kept which were partly written in a secret code, documenting a lifetime of lesbian relationships.
The series has led to renewed interest in Lister's diaries and many have gone on to read Helena Whitbread's decoding of them, as well as the tie-in biography that was released before the series began.
Anne Lister's home, Shibden Hall, has also received a huge influx of visitors since the series began to air. Fans will also visit the Holy Trinity Church in York, the place where she took sacrament with Ann Walker, and where a blue plaque commemorates them.
The juggernaut ship, and a big focus of the show, is Anne/Ann.
