Episode Synopsis: “The Forsyte Saga,” Part 6. It's 1899, and Soames (Damian Lewis), 43, decides he wants a child. And since he can't divorce Irene, he wants her to be the mother. As usual, he won't take no for an answer. As for Irene (Gina McKee), she has found a friend in Young Jolyon (Rupert Graves). Meanwhile, Dartie (Ben Miles) has returned from South America, and Winifred (Amanda Root) has taken him back. But their son Val (Julian Ovenden) isn't so forgiving.

Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
