5 Anglo/Scottish Couples

By: Fraser McAlphine

As this week is all about the potential split between Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom—depending on the results of today’s referendum (September 18)—it’s worth spending a moment dwelling on the good times, the positive things that have come from the relationship between Scotland and England. And when I say relationship, I mean the kind that comes with pipers, kilts and a wedding ring.

In the spirit of international accord on a day of decision, here are five couples who have said “Yes” to an Anglo/Scottish union.

Tell us your favorites!

The first 3 minutes of In The Flesh was all it took for me to be hooked. Give it a peek, it’s worth your time.

If you like character-driven zombie shows featuring canonically queer lead characters that raise genuinely interesting and complex moral and ethical questions about discrimination, health care, politics, self-identity, mental health, religion, and society in general…uh…you definitely need to be watching In The Flesh.

Take a deep breath, folks. There’s a lot of stuff going on this month, and it’s gonna be fantastic.

What the extraordinary Orphan Black proves is that the geek community is not just ready for one type of badass woman; it’s ready for (at least) five.

Because Maslany’s performance and the show’s writing contain multitudes and run the gamut of archetypal feminine strength. We have Sarah (who covers wiliness, brawn, and a mothering instinct), Cosima (sheer brain power), Alison (cunning, heightened femininity, and another kind of mothering instinct), Rachel (ruthless ambition), and, best of all, Helena (relentless, feral strength). Helena is the show’s true gift to women, particularly in this season when she took on masculine oppression wherever she went…
