Drama: The Scandalous Lady W
Game of Thrones and Hunger Games star Natalie Dormer leads the cast in this fact-based drama about the scandalous life of Lady Worsley, an 18th-century noblewoman who dared to leave her husband and elope with his best friend, Captain George Bisset. As a result, she finds herself at the centre of a very public trial as the powerful Sir Richard Worsley seeks compensation from her lover - so she takes the decision to expose the truth about her marriage and the affair. With Shaun Evans (Endeavour) and Aneurin Barnard (Cilla).
First in a two-part drama chronicling the Virgin Queen's later years, beginning by examining her relationship with the Earl of Leicester - who is vexed when a French suitor arrives at the English court. The newcomer swiftly proves a rival for the monarch's affections, before the execution of Mary Queen of Scots and the war with Spain test her mettle. Helen Mirren puts in an Emmy-winning performance in the title role.
