The Beggar Bride
Angela Harper (Keeley Hawes) is a wife and mother who, along with her husband, Billy (Joe Duttine) are having quite serious financial problems. At the scene of a car accident, however, Angela has a chance encounter and comes up with an idea on how she can rescue herself and her family from certain poverty.
At home she tries explaining to her husband that her plan is to seduce and bigamously marry Sir Fabian Ormerod (Nicholas Jones) for the pure reason of extorting money from him.
After cleverly engineering a *chance* meeting with Sir Fabian at the opera everything seems to be going according to plan until Angela falls pregnant.
Knowing of Sir Fabian's desire for son and heir, Angela convinces Sir Fabian that the child is his and the couple marry.
However, the marriage causes friction with Sir Fabian's unbalanced daughter, Honesty (Charlotte Williams). When baby Harry is born, events really come to a head and Honesty realises he will be the heir to the family fortune - leaving her possibly penniless.
When Angela starts receiving anonymous letters which threaten to expose her lurid past, the stakes rise even higher.
Finally, all hell breaks loose when Harry is kidnapped and the police become involved. Who is the mysterious letter writer? How are these events connected to the mysterious, unsolved death of Sir Fabian's first wife? Will all be revealed? You'll have to watch and see.
