Dear, decent Jack Whicher is eking out a living as a private eye working on a divorce case for a husband who suspects his wife is having an affair when she travels to London on have-it-away days with a handsome young man.
But there’s more to this than meets the eye as Whicher returns to Wiltshire (the county where he first made his name as a doughty detective investigating the real-life Road Hill House murder) to report his findings and make more inquiries.
For a start, the young swain is a bit of a cad, while the naughty wife seems far from the flighty piece that her husband makes her out to be. Whicher soon finds his emotional capacity tested when a tearful young woman, with an unconvincing baby clasped to her bosom, begs for his help.
Hired by West Country landowner Sir Henry Coverley, Whicher takes on a seemingly straightforward case of infidelity, following his client's young wife as she meets her lover in London. However, when a key witness mysteriously fails to attend the divorce hearing, the investigation takes a dark twist, leading the private inquiry agent into the heart of the English countryside and to the most disturbing and destructive of secrets. Feature-length Victorian crime drama, starring Paddy Considine, with Helen Bradbury, Risteard Cooper and Alex Robertson.
