Maybe this is the start of a trend to revive the Good Old Days That Never Were? Maybe someone will create a show called, I dunno, “What the Dickens?”, about a world where the work houses and poor houses and industrial orphanages never went away, and poor people could be traded and worked to death and left to starve in the gutter for being, well, poor. And not speaking properly, of course.
