Einstein and Eddington?

My brother, Adrian, emailed me, noting no review of the BBC-2 play last Saturday.

I replied as follows:

"On the Einstein and Eddington thing, yes, I thought about reviewing it but I just couldn't summon up the energy. I've somehow lost track of the rules about historically-based dramas - the extent to which you can distort history and just make stuff up. There were so many inaccuracies I DID know about (may I mention the missing Marcel Grossman?) that I just got very suspicious of all the other stuff.

Otherwise it passed the time agreeably enough and Tennant is a fine actor."
