BLACK­MAIL!

Soap World - - THIS MONTH -

Con­sr­va­tive MP Jeremy Thorpe’s se­cret gay love af­fair with hand­some sta­ble­boy Nor­man Scott in 1961 haunts him four years af­ter it ended. Pro­gres­sive politi­cians push to le­galise ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity but a fear­ful Jeremy, be­ing black­mailed with ex­po­sure by Nor­man, in­tends to keep the closet door slammed shut. He rea­sons the only way to do that is to have Nor­man killed! Fail­ing to do so over sev­eral years, Jeremy’s de­sire for blood is as strong as ever, par­tic­u­larly when Nor­man ig­nites a me­dia scan­dal that may de­stroy his hopes of be­ing elected prime min­is­ter.

A VERY ENGLISH SCAN­DAL THURS­DAYS AT 8.30PM ON BBC FIRST
