The three-part series, "A Very English Scandal" set in 1960s Britain with homosexuality only just decriminalized, traces the remarkable trial of Liberal party leader Jeremy Thorpe (Grant), who went to extraordinary levels of corruption and deceit -- to the extent of conspiracy to commit murder -- as former lover Norman Scott (Whishaw) remained around town and threatened to expose his secret.
