When the tabloids scream the news that Tory up-and-comer and arbiter of family values Duncan Matlock has been caught in an affair with an "escort" girl, no one is more stunned than Flora, his devoted wife. As her husband and the party machinery behind him expect, Flora maintains a loyal façade. But in private, her anguish hardens into rage after erotic telephone tapes reveal the extent of her husband's duplicity. Employing strange sexual games and covert political tactics, she plots the ultimate revenge.

See also The Politicians Husband by same writer following this one. Sometimes hard to watch & frequently I was lost with the strategies. Still, I find it so much better than drivel H-wood puts out.

Nicely done mini-series with great acting.

So a right wing politician's wife takes revenge and becomes a right wing politician - but no detailing of their feelings/ideas about their really scurrilous work.

A cut-above PBS mini-series focusing on scandals and intrigues in London's Houses of Parliament. Bonuses include an intelligent performance by Juliet Stevenson in the leading role, plus a couple of surprisingly imaginative sex tapes, purposefully seeded into an otherwise typically restrained British screenplay. A young Minnie Driver excels in her role as the floozie.

This British drama lives up to the reputation of being the best of the best. The acting, directing, camerawork - all top notch and it's also a riveting story.

Juliet Stevenson is perfect as the devoted, hard working, under appreciated wife behind the scene.
