Experience Jane Austen's last, fragmented work, picked up by Noted screenwriter Andrew Davies and taken in a glorious and satisfying direction.

Tonight: Romance! Lord Babington courts Esther, who prefers Edward. Charlotte and Sidney clash over Miss Lambe's illicit meeting with Otis. Young Stringer and Charlotte strike up a friendship.
