"Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins worked together at King’s College London, just a train ride away from and a few steps behind James Watson and Francis Crick in the race to discover the structure of DNA. But Franklin was a woman and, according to the play and some historians, the sexism at King’s alienated her. Photograph 51 argues that Franklin’s icy relationship with Wilkins, plus her obsessively slow and methodical working style, are the reason she and Wilkins lost the race." (Brendan Kiley)
