3 Causes to Binge Prime Video's Drama


Excessive society, low blows! Meet Margaret, Duchess of Argyll (Claire Foy), and Ian Campbell, the eleventh Duke of Argyll (Paul Bettany), whose ugly divorce in Sixties England set a brand new commonplace for, properly, scandal. Right here’s why we couldn’t get sufficient of the three-parter, A Very British Scandal, which premieres April 22.

1. The chemistry.

Earlier than the blue bloods’ union devolves into hate and spite, the duke (whom exec producer Delyth Scudamore calls a “attractive monster”) and duchess share a ardour that virtually ignites on the display.

2. The underhanded habits.

In a match of frustration, Margaret forges a letter from Ian’s ex-wife implying that his kids have been fathered by one other man. Later, he steals nude images of Margaret from her and submits them as proof at their explosive and headline-grabbing divorce trial.

3. Foy’s efficiency.

The Emmy-winning former star of The Crown offers one other award-worthy flip, balancing fragility and ferocity. Says Scudamore, “You are feeling her vulnerability even while she’s delivering probably the most steely retort.”
