I just realized that lady Ada was actually a historical figure. I can't remember where I heard it though...

I really enjoyed the movie too.
It's a shame that for a long while his death was believed to be suicide as 'homosexuals were mentally unstable'. However from his diary and notes he was healthy, busy, and with a lot if idea's that he was still working on. That he was working with cyanide in several experiments was overlooked as an effect on his death.. rather than the principle and deliberate cause.
