Starring Hugh Grant (Florence Foster Jenkins) and Ben Wishaw (Spectre), A Very English Scanal is based on John Preston’s book A Very English Scandal: Sex, Lies and a Murder Plot at the Heart of the Establishment. The series is written by Russell T Davies (Doctor Who) and directed by Stephen Frears (Florence Foster Jenkins).
A Very English Scandal is the shocking true story of the first British politician to stand trial for conspiracy to murder. It’s the late 1960s, homosexuality has only just been decriminalized, and Jeremy Thorpe, the leader of the Liberal party and the youngest leader of any British political party in a hundred years, has a secret he’s desperate to hide. As long as Norman Scott, his vociferous ex-lover is around, Thorpe’s brilliant career is at risk, and eventually Thorpe can see only one way to silence Scott for good. The trial of Jeremy Thorpe changed politics forever as the British public discovered the darkest secrets of the Establishment and the lengths they’d go to conceal them.
Originally airing on BBC One in May, A Very English Scandal is rated 15 and has a running time of 2 hours and 48 minutes.
