I couldn't make this fit into a tweet to @starz_channel.

I was looking at the Jacquetta Woodville bio on The White Queen's site, and to my annoyance, I read, Jacquetta believes that both her [sic] and her daughter are descended from the river goddess Melusina . . . . No. If Jacquetta believes anything, it's that she and her daughter are descended from the goddess in question! As well, earlier in the bio, "court-life" doesn't need that hyphen.

I might forgive the unnecessary use of the hyphen, but the use of an objective pronoun where a subjective one is required is difficult to take—and it does nothing to persuade me to watch the show.

Anyone else suffering from a minor, SPAG-related annoyance?
