I can't believe I am researching the fricking smell of fricking Victorian prisons from fricking PRIMARY SOURCES. Comparing and contrasting the Medical Times and Gazette (which I got amazingly excited about finding) with Frank Harris's interviews with Oscar Wilde.  

Good God. Also, I don't think the movie got it right. Too much Generic Olden Days Cells of Nastiness. Don't they realise it's set in 1891??? Not 1845???

And I can't believe I decided to send a character to Wandsworth, about which I knew nothing, when I could have sent him to Newgate, about which I had at least some basic information and knew where to find more.

In other news I really am going to have to write that decoy fic, my father has renewed his request to see what I'm working on.
