The glamorous world of the 19th - century music hall provides the backdrop for Nan's first love affair with Kitty Butler, a popular male impersonator. When Kitty is offered the chance to perform in London, a delightful Nan accompanies her as a dresser, but true success doesn't happen until Nan becomes part of the act.

Alone and devastated by her betrayal, Nan cannot return to her family in Whitstable so takes to the streets to survive.

You didn't see much of her face in "Tipping the Velvet" to be fair.

She was good undercover(s) in "Spooks" too.

Yeah - they were in "dipping the velvet"

Keely isn't in this film. I am a big Keely fan. Is this series one for the lads? Do women enjoy this?

Keeley Hawes is definitely in this. It's fairly enjoyable even if you are not watching it for the reasons most people seem to....! For the story the book is better though.

That's correct. Claire "Keeley" Hawes is though

Also the voice of Lara Croft in the "Tomb Raider: Anniversary", "...Legend", and "...Underworld" video games.


There was only one series too; whether it be for lads or lasses.

As for whether laydees like this or not, the two actresses in the lead roles didn't seem to have a problem with it!

Ah yes... Ms Hazell. Nope... definitely not an actress for the BBC if her video reviews are to be believed

Why didn't they just flip the image 'round so the actresses names were in the same order (left to right) as the photo? Silly BBC.

Talking of photos, Rachael Stirling (Nan Astley in "Tipping the Velvet") is very like her mother (Dame Diana Rigg) when supporting a longer hair style...
