What to watch tonight 

A chance to rewatch the now-Golden Globe-nominated A Very English Scandal

Added on

  • DRAMA A Very English Scandal

    If you missed A Very English Scandal the first time around, tonight is your second chance to catch it as it re-airs on BBC Four. Based on the story of the Thorpe affair and subsequent murder plot, it follows the lives of MP Jeremy Thorpe and Norman Scott, who had an affair back in the early 1960s when homosexuality was still illegal. Ben Whishaw is outstanding as the reserved yet gregarious Scott, as is Hugh Grant in the role of the indescribably posh and ruthless Thorpe; both performances caught the eyes of the critics, earning each of the actors Golden Globe nominations.
