A VERY ENGLISH SCANDAL
FANTASTIC NEW DRAMA SUN 20 MAY, 9PM, BBC1
Hugh Grant shows just what a fantastic actor he is in this compelling three-part drama, which tells the true story of the ’70s Jeremy Thorpe affair; the first British politician ever to stand trial for murder. Grant plays Liberal leader Thorpe – who went on trial at the Old Bailey for conspiracy to do away with his lover Norman (Ben Whishaw) after their illicit romance soon became a troublesome secret. Seduction, power, paranoia – and plenty of snogging – it’s all here. Don’t miss!
