What is known as the Thorpe affair, centered on the at the time clandestine homosexual affair between Liberal MP and later Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe and stable boy Norman Scott, that affair when sodomy was still illegal in Britain, is the main feature of the story presented.

Review

Really good production from year 2018. I can recommend the tv series with a clear conscience to anyone who appreciates deep and thought-provoking cinema. The hollywood doesn't have large number of better tv series than A Very English Scandal - Season 1. Stephen Frears showed us the world on the screen from a different perspective. Friends call me crazy when I tell em I saw the whole tv show online more than 10 times. It owes its phenomenon to continuous action and increasing tension, which drops only after the screening.
