Masterpiece Episode: "He Knew He Was Right"

Season 35, Episode 1
Episode Synopsis: Jealousy consumes a Victorian husband in the two-part “He Knew He Was Right,” Anthony Trollope's 1869 take on “Othello.” The tragic lovers: feisty Emily Rowley (Laura Fraser) and her insecure husband, Louis Trevelyan (Oliver Dimsdale). The third party: a flirtatious, if not adulterous, friend (Bill Nighy) of Emily's father. In contrast, romances involving other characters play out with far less intensity. Screenwriter Andrew Davies updated “Othello” in 2002 for “Masterpiece Theatre.”
