Thank YOU for the excellent article on the American election (YOU, 19 November). I have never quite understood how their political system works and the article made it crystal clear. I’m delighted they have a female vice president! MOXIE, EMAIL Thank you for including the crossword solutions in the same magazine. Some of us share the magazines and once we give them away, the solutions go with them. Love your magazine! KAREN, SMS Having watched William and Harry work through so much in their lives, it’s a tragedy that Netflix is stirring up issues that must be of torment to them in The Crown. We are to blame, too, by watching the series. I for one will not watch, in support of the mental health of two young men and their families. GILLIAN WILKINSON, EMAIL We…

SERVANT SEASON 1 Horror. A wealthy couple hire a nanny to look after their newborn baby – what could be scary about that?

When 18-year-old nanny Leanne (Nell Tiger Free, Game of Thrones’ Myrcella Baratheon) arrives, she doesn’t blink at having to look after a doll, and dotes on it as if it were real. Then – twist! – somehow it is…

BE KIND. It’s the type of message that often gets shared on social media without a second thought and I wish more people would actually do it. Now, more than ever, a little kindness will go a long way. Because it’s true what the memes say: you just don’t know what people are going through. Maybe someone knocked their trolley into you because they were thinking of their sick child. Or they didn’t smile at your greeting because they’re mourning the loss of a loved one or have recently been retrenched. It might be they didn’t thank you for something due to the fact they’re struggling to get out of a fog of depression or they’re spiralling down a financial black hole and can’t see the light any longer. There are so many things people are…
