What was the name of....

...the ballsy female dock worker? In series 2, I believe, when Rose was designing the female dock workers a more flattering, functional uniform there was a real common one. She was a little outspoken. What was her name?

Is she now the racist machinist /head sewing matron for lady mae?

Re: What was the name of....

Yes. Miss Ellis.

Re: What was the name of....

I can't believe what she's become. Not that she wasn't a racist then. There were just no people of color before.







Some people call it a Cul-de-sac. I call it a Dead End

Re: What was the name of....

London has always had a large population of nonwhites. Not to mention the large numbers of different ethnicities passing through the docklands.

Miss Ellis's racism/xenophobia wasn't out of place at all. This was, after all, the era of social darwinism, eugenics, and scientific racism.
