The drama opens on a World War I battlefield. A muddied soldier runs for the cover of a war-beaten trench to find a young woman hiding.
Both are alone, consumed with fear. This simple, yet epic opening fires the spoils of war into the forefront of the drama and casts a shadow over the story to follow, as it shifts in time to s London. We meet the soldier again, Leonard Vole, who is quickly seduced by a wealthy widow, Emily French, glamorously played by the wonderful Kim Cattrall.
French seemingly pulls the strings and Vole is caught in her lustful web, much to the disgust of her outspoken maid Janet McIntyre, played by the characterful Monica Dolan. Emily French has been brutally murdered and Janet thinks she knows who did it.
It was Leonard Vole.
Embroiled in the bitter tale is penniless solicitor John Mayhew, exceptionally characterised by Toby Jones, who is charged with representing Vole. Jones delivers an emotional rawness to his performance, conveying a man as scarred by war as Vole, ripe to be taken advantage of.
Romaine is the young woman Leonard met in the trench — an image Phelps returns to to open the second part of the drama, as the pair emerge from the trench to face the desolated world together. Money changes everything and viciously Romaine testifies against him.
