If so it will be lazy and boring of them. We have already had Meredith. Azzit were (She was lousy, and also silent. TB.)

No, it’s all about Mia being burdened wiv domestic cares, innit. She’s got the yokelette (yokelina?) accent an’ all. Why is between the Almighty and the casting director/tbtb.
Will we sympathise more/less, will she deserve it more/less, all kinds of plus/minus blah, if she sounds as if she has a straw between her teeth and cowshit between her toes? Or is it that, having permitted Will to speak like what he do, tbtb are just being defiant, out and proud about really bad accents?

Anyone else remember Bleak Expectations?

And the winds! Few people now know that Norfolk used to be right next to Somerset before a hurri-twister-phoon blew it all the way to East Anglia, explaining why Norfolk and Somerset accents sound so similar—it is not just actors being lazy.3

Read that as yoke-lette rather than yokel-ette, which in the context made perfect sense.

Hang on, didn’t they do the same thing quite recently, with Elizabeth assuming that Lily was a wearer of comfortable shoes?

Yes—the mysterious (and probably entirely fictional) “Meredith”.

Another example of Lily being a little liar, Meredith was.

Actually, we don’t know whether that was always the case, do we? She might have had a friend* called Meredith, after all. Not all of her absences necessarily involved the Deputy Head Le(e)cher.






*OK, acquaintance, then.
