This 5-part BBC miniseries is set in the dying days of the Edwardian Empire. Christopher Tietjens, married to the beautiful but cruel socialite Sylvia, is an English aristocrat clinging to Edwardian values as the world around him seems to change at dizzying speed. He refuses to compromise these principles whatever the cost  – resigning from his job as a government statistician when he is asked to manipulate the facts, and remaining faithful to Sylvia even when she leaves him for another man. When Christopher falls in love with Valentine, a young suffragette, he faces a battle between what he feels for her and what he feels is right.
