I have been loving this so much (especially Mrs Wragge!!) but I fear that in the final episode there are some formerly minor characters who are going to become v. significant and I'm a bit lost. The admiral? Bartram? Kirk? Can you help without spoilers? Thank you!

If you go on Wikipedia, they go over the plot and Characters. Collins was a contemporary of Dickens but his women are not as sickly.
Some of the plot is a bit farcical, but I think I can I say without spoiling it for you that it all comes good in the end.
It is on Radio 4 extra ATM, and you can get the book on audio books free as it is out of copy-write.
Have you also read The Women in White?

Hello, thank you I went and did the Wikipedia thing, excellent idea. Just listened to it. What an excellent production! Sorry it's finished, I will pine a bit.

Well if you loved that book, you could try his others. I am not so keen on the Moonstone though.
You will also love Anthony Trollope, the Barchester Towers Chronicles.
Anyway if you want any more of similar sort of reads, let me know.
