Masterpiece Episode: "Me and Mrs. Jones"

Season 32, Episode 9
Episode Synopsis: Affairs of state take a back seat to affairs of another kind in “Me and Mrs. Jones,” a seriocomic romance set at No. 10 Downing St. Robson Green (“Touching Evil”) stars as a party fund-raiser named Harry Frazier. But Harry is really gossip columnist Liam Marple, whose nom de plume is “Mrs. Jones.” His mission: dig up dirt on Prime Minister Laura Bowden (Caroline Goodall). Harry has no trouble worming his way into the PM's life, which makes his tabloid job easy. And making it easier still is the fact that Laura's husband (Philip Quast) is a flagrant philanderer. Soon, Laura and Harry start philandering themselves.
