In his first drama for ITV since Jeeves and Wooster in the 90s, Stephen Fry plays a delightful village solicitor in Norfolk, in a picturesque setting and living a wonderful listed house while driving an Alvis.

To top it all, his brother is missing, presumed dead, when his clothes turn up on the beach.
