The BBC have today revealed the airdate for The Scandalous Lady W starring Natalie Dormer. The one off drama will air on BBC Two on the 17th of August from 9:00pm to 10:30pm. Synopsis below:
Dormer plays the passionate, courageous Seymour, Lady Worsley, who escapes her troubled marriage only to find herself at the centre of a very public trial brought by her powerful husband Sir Richard Worsley, played by Shaun Evans (Endeavour, The Lost Weekend), who seeks compensation from her lover for the affair.
As this extraordinary true story unfolds, Lady Worsley takes the brave decision to publicly expose the secrets of her marriage. The scandalous courtroom revelations challenge the hypocrisy of the law that brands a wife the property of her husband, calling into question the whole concept of a woman’s ‘worth’.
