What We’re Watching:
The English Game (Netflix) is a new miniseries about the beautiful game, set alongside class struggles of the industrial revolution in England in 1882-3. It follows Fergus Suter and James Waslh, the Scots who taught the English how to pass the ball, as the aristocracy struggles with the growing popularity of the sport. The makers of Downton Abbey know what we expect from a costume drama, and improved it by adding football.
