The Forsyte Saga II: Episode 1 Season 33, Episode 6

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). read more

The Forsyte Saga Season 33, Episode 5

As this series of “The Forsyte Saga” concludes, Soames (Damian Lewis) is desperate for a son---“on any terms!” he screams to Irene (Gina McKee).

And Irene, as it happens, is growing ever closer to Young Jolyon (Rupert Graves). read more

Doctor Zhivago Season 33, Episode 4

“Doctor Zhivago” concludes with Yury (Hans Matheson) and Lara (Keira Knightley) consummating their longing for each other as the Soviet revolution plays out around them. Unlike Omar Sharif and Julie Christie in David Lean's 1965 adaptation of Boris Pasternak's novel, Matheson and Knightley spend plenty of time in bed together, and while the sex is filmed decorously, it's steamy nonetheless. Meanwhile, the Communists are making life dangerous for both Yury and Lara. Komarovsky: Sam Neill. read more

Doctor Zhivago Season 33, Episode 3

Keira Knightley and Hans Matheson star in a two-part 2003 remake of “Doctor Zhivago,” Boris Pasternak's sweeping novel set during the Russian Revolution. But they're together only fleetingly (and by chance) for most of Part 1. While the sensitive Yury makes his name as a physician in prerevolutionary Moscow and marries his childhood sweetheart, Tonya (Alexandra Maria Lara), the mysterious Lara (Knightley) must contend with the lecherous lawyer Komarovsky (Sam Neill). read more

Goodbye Mr. Chips Season 33, Episode 2

Martin Clunes, a veteran of the British version of “Men Behaving Badly,” is much better behaved as the gentle Victorian schoolmaster in this adaptation of James Hilton's sentimental 1934 novel “Goodbye Mr. Chips.” The episodic story follows Arthur Chipping (Clunes) throughout his adult life---all of it at the elite British boarding school Brookfield---from his disastrous first Latin class to his death following World War I. Kathie: Victoria Hamilton. Staefel: Conleth Hill. Wetherby: John Wood. Ralston: Patrick Malahide. Burnley: David Horovitch. read more

Warrior Queen Season 33, Episode 1

Alex Kingston (“ER”) portrays Boudica, Britain's “Warrior Queen,” whacking her way through Roman legions with Xena-like zeal in this brooding, fact-based drama. It's set in the 1st century, with Britain living uneasily in a “client king” relationship with Rome. But that changes when Agrippina (Frances Barber) poisons Claudius (Jack Shepherd) and Nero (Andrew Lee Potts) becomes emperor. He'll brook nothing less than total subjugation, and battle lines are drawn. Screenwriter Andrew Davies, a “Masterpiece Theatre” veteran, also penned the adaptation of “Moll Flanders” featuring Kingston that aired on PBS in 1996. read more
