EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MISS SCARLET & THE DUKE

MISS SCARLET & THE DUKE ON MASTERPIECE
NEW SERIES
Sunday  7pm
Binge the entire first season with LPB Passport on the night of the broadcast premiere. 

In Victorian-era London,a female private detective might be the last thing you'd expect to find...but this is a MASTERPIECE production, so all things are possible! 

This smart, edgy mystery series is set in 1882 London and features actress Kate Phillips (Peaky Blinders) as the fearless and quick-witted Eliza Scarlet and Stuart Martin (Jamestown) as her childhood friend, colleague, and love interest Detective William Wellington, a.k.a. The Duke.

Scarlet was raised working alongside her father, a renowned London private detective. When he suddenly dies, Eliza realizes her circumstances aren't as favorable as she had expected. What's a girl to do except take up the family business? Her biggest problem: she's a woman! 

Meanwhile her relationship with friend William is complicated to say the least. Sometimes bossy, sometimes her competition, sometimes her adversary and sometimes her partner, William alternately helps Scarlet and infuriates her! 


Also on Masterpiece Sunday night...
