Storyline

Leslie Titmuss (David Threlfall, Shameless) has never quite fit in among the denizens of Rapstone village. Socially awkward and hailing from a humble background, he nonetheless aspires to the highest levels of society--and he's prepared to do whatever it takes to get there. For much of his life, Titmuss was taken under the wing of the kindly Reverend Simcox (Michael Hordern, Ann of the Thousand Days). This caused little concern for the clergyman's sons, Henry (Peter Egan, A Perfect Spy) and Fred (Paul Shelley, A Tale of Two Cities). But when their father dies, they have every reason to complain: he has willed the family fortune to Titmuss. Was he mad? Or is there a darker explanation? Follow the families' interwoven histories from the years after WWII to the height of the Thatcher era. Nominated for four BAFTAs, Paradise Postponed and its sequel, Titmuss Regained, also star Kristen Scott Thomas (The English Patient), Annette Crosbie (Edward the King), and Zoe Wanamaker (Harry Potter ...
