Last night’s episode of Who Do You Think You Are? was full of twists and turns as Sarah Millican’s ancestors experienced hazards and dangers from off the coast of Kent to the Hudson Bay in Canada before settling down in South Shields in the North East.
Sarah experienced a taste of the life her ancestors went through, wearing snow boots in Canada to trying on a diver’s suit similar to the one her 3x Great Grandfather James Hoult used in his working life. It was an eventful and emotional episode, particularly the near death experience and gruesome injuries of her ancestor, John Malcolm. What did you think? If you missed it, the programme is available on the BBC iPlayer.
