Masterpiece Episode: "The Way We Live Now"

Season 31, Episode 17
Episode Synopsis: “The Way We Live Now,” conclusion. In the wake of Paul Montague's disclosure about the railroad, Malmotte (David Suchet) admits to being “overstretched.” In fact, what money he does have is in Marie's name, and Marie (Shirley Henderson) isn't inclined to let him have it. But prospects are not so bleak for the Carburys, though Hetta (Paloma Baeza) concedes that her liaison with Paul leaves much to be desired. “It's so messy and complicated and compromised,” she says.

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.'
