Masterpiece Episode: "Breathless"

Season 44, Episode 28
Episode Synopsis: Part 1 of 3 of "Breathless," about the goings-on in a 1961 London hospital's obstetrics ward. Dr. Otto Powell is especially busy juggling work; a lucrative, illegal sideline; a family; and extracurricular dalliances. Here, he's attracted to a new nurse who—unknown to him and his associates—is the sister of fellow nurse Jean, who's soon to marry Powell's colleague Richard. But the soap-opera elements of his life may be the least of his concerns when a police inspector begins snooping around.

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