Season 32, Episode 2
Episode Synopsis: “The Forsyte Saga” (Part 2 of seven). Irene (Gina McKee) and architect Philip Bosinney (Ioan Gruffudd) only have eyes for each other, and Bosinney's heartbroken fiancée (Gillian Kearney) sees it. She's not the only Forsyte who does. Not surprisingly, Irene is growing ever more miserable in her marriage to the chilly Soames (Damian Lewis), whose hatred for Bosinney grows as the country house Bosinney's building for him rises. Soames complains bitterly---too bitterly---about cost overruns. Swithin: Robert Lang. Dartie: Ben Miles.

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.'
