Masterpiece Episode: "The Forsyte Saga II: Episode 1"

Season 33, Episode 6
Episode Synopsis: The three-part “Forsyte Saga II” chronicles the problematic romance of Soames's daughter Fleur (Emma Griffiths Malin) and Young Jolyon's son Jon (Lee Williams). As it opens it's 1909, and young Fleur and Jon are frolicking in the mud. Soames (Damian Lewis) doesn't like this. Nor does he like it when the two meet again 11 years later, and neither does Jolyon (Rupert Graves). The willful and effervescent Fleur is perplexed as to why, and when she's told she proclaims: “A family feud. How romantic!” Also in the picture: a dashing war veteran named Mont (Oliver Milburn), of whom Soames approves. Meanwhile, Jolyon has developed heart disease, but won't tell Irene (Gina McKee); and a Belgian boulevardier named Profond (Michael Maloney) attracts the eyes of both Winifred Dartie (Amanda Root) and Soames' wife Annette (Beatriz Batarda).
