The program, written by Sally Wainwright, is based on the diaries of 19th-century landowner Anne Lister, who is often dubbed Britain’s ‘first modern lesbian’.
The first series followed Anne when she embarked on a relationship with her fellow heiress Ann Walker, after enjoying several relationships with other women.
After falling in love, the two broke up when Ann was taken to Scotland, under the threat of being married by her brother-in-law.
However, the ending saw the couple reunited when Ann was called back to Yorkshire to visit her bedridden aunt.
