What is A Very British Scandal about?
Similar to A Very English Scandal, A Very British Scandal focuses on the divorce of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, one of the most notorious and brutal legal cases of the 20th century.
It was a divorce that was highly-publicised and included the discovery of salacious photographs and scandalous testimonies.
Margret, Duchess of Argyll is known for her beauty, style and charisma, which dominated the front pages as the divorce exposed accusations of forgery, theft, violence, drug-taking, bribery, and an explicit Polaroid picture that was to haunt her for the rest of her life.
Writer and creator, Sarah Phelps has spoken about her excitement to dramatise the story.
It explores the social attitudes of post-war Britain towards women, Sarah explains: “Writing the story of Margaret’s life and the events leading up to and including her divorce from the Duke has been a passion project of mine since 1993 when I first heard her name and started learning about her,”
“I felt very strongly that she’d been punished for being a woman, for being visible, for refusing to back down, be a good girl and go quietly. This drama is my tribute to her.”
Who is the cast for A Very British Scandal?
Claire Foy will play Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, which should come as no challenge for her as she played the Queen in the first two seasons of the Netflix series, The Crown.
Marvel fans can celebrate, as WandaVision‘s Paul Bettany will play the Duke of Argyll.
Also starring are Amanda Drew, Richard McCabe, Phoebe Nicholls, Camilla Rutherford, Timothy Renouf, Sophia Myles, Sophie Ward, Tim Steed and Katherine Manners.
