Sir: Have John Lyttle and David Benedict overlooked the true significance of the recent spate of costume dramas ("All Dressed Up for the Movies", 26 August)? Hardy and Jude apart, they are almost all by women about women's concerns and with heroines rather than heroes. Where once we used happily to swash a buckle we now only swish a bustle. Is this all yet another post-feminist ploy to take over the commanding heights of our autonomy?
