Wonder if at any point, the cast read the script and went,
“Haha post office, that’s a good one”
I mean you could have said to lunch or town, maybe a nice little B&B. But the post office? Thomas really, I know your life has called for little romance but at least make it convincing, Edith’s just be traumatised and you choose post office.
In all fairness, I must say as someone who is from the British Isles, this is typically a British thing, we do love our post offices. We love them even more now at the thought of possible romantic endeavours taking place. Not to mention the old dears would be quite stunned whilst buying their stamps and collecting their pensions.
