Plot Summary

Nick Guest comes to London to live with his college friend's family, the Feddens. A short stay becomes permanent, and Nick positions himself in the family's plentiful lives of parties and politics during the Thatcher years. Over the course of three episodes spanning four years in the mid-eighties, we follow Nick's two homosexual love affairs in a time of promiscuity and carelessness, until the AIDS crisis and a bout of scandal threaten life as he has come to know it. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

Quotes Catherine Fedden: You're really very rich, aren't you, Sir Maurice?
Sir Maurice Tipper: Yes. I am.
Catherine Fedden: How much have you got?
Sally Tipper: Oh, my dear, what a question. You can never exactly say, can you? It goes up so fast. All the time these days.
Catherine Fedden: Well, roughly.
Sir Maurice Tipper: Roughly... a-hundred-and-fifty million.
Catherine Fedden: A-hundred-and-fifty million pounds?
Sir Maurice Tipper: Give or take a few million, yes.
Catherine Fedden: I noticed you gave some money to the appeal at Podier Church.
Sally Tipper: We give to endless appeals and churches.
Catherine Fedden: How much did you give?
Sir Maurice Tipper: I don't recall exactly.
Catherine Fedden: You gave five francs. That's about 50p. *That's* how much you gave.
Gerald Fedden: [arriving] What's all this about?
Sir Maurice Tipper: This young lady was giving me some criticism. Apparently I'm rather mean.
Catherine Fedden: Oh, I didn't say that.
Sally Tipper: You certainly implied it.
Catherine Fedden: All right, I did. And if I was in charge I think I should stop people from being able to have a-hundred-and-fifty million pounds.
Gerald Fedden: Just as well you're not, then, Puss.
