Masterpiece Episode: "Wives and Daughters"

Season 30, Episode 16
Episode Synopsis: “Wives and Daughters” (Part 3 of four). Roger Hamley's affections for Cynthia (Keeley Hawes) blossom into an engagement but not a formal one, for he's soon off for Africa for two years---a development that upsets Molly (Justine Waddell) more than Cynthia. Lurking in the shadows, meanwhile, is Mr. Preston (Iain Glen), the land agent of dubious reputation. And keeping a keen eye on things are the gossiping Browning sisters (Barbara Flynn, Deborah Findlay). Roger: Anthony Howell. Mr. Gibson: Bill Paterson. Hyacinth: Francesca Annis. Squire Hamley: Michael Gambon.

Premise: PBS's longest running (and most honored) dramatic series is an Anglophile's delight, featuring British adaptations of literary classics and original works. The first `Masterpiece' was `The First Churchills,' and since then it has won nine Peabodys and 29 Emmys (beginning with Susan Hampshire's Best Actress award for `Churchills'). Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
