I had always assumed it was a photo of her husband. I hadn't really
scrutinized the dress that they were wearing. I'm guessing Lady A is
around my father's age though, so she wouldn't be quite old enough to
be married in the 40's and even if she were, to not start having
children until the 60's? Doesn't make sense.
It would make sense though that she'd have a wedding photograph of
herself and her husband out though and I don't think it too odd that
she would look at it even if her "boyfriend" (he seems more than that)
were around. After all, the doctor had been with her since before her
husband died and had known her husband and this was the occasion of
her own son's engagement, so it makes sense she'd be looking at a
photograph of his father and remembering when she'd married him. I
assume her marriage had been a happy one. We aren't given many clues
about it in the films.
Maybe "they" don't intend for us to think in such detail about these
films as we do. Actually, I'm quite certain they don't, LOL. Still,
attention to detail really does add to the quality of a programme and
the lack of it can really detract.
