The private lives of Britain's most public figures! Open Britain's most famous door for a glimpse at the personal affairs that have unfolded over the centuries inside Number 10 Downing Street. In seven thrilling episodes, a veteran cast of actors portray some of Britain's most notable prime ministers-including William Gladstone (Denis Quilley, Murder on the Orient Express), Benjamin Disraeli (Richard Pasco, Mrs. Brown), David Lloyd George (John Stride, The Main Chance), and Ramsay MacDonald (BAFTA-winner Ian Richardson, House of Cards). Jeremy Brett (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) delivers a tour-de-force performance as the brilliant but tragic William Pitt the Younger. Spanning the Napoleonic era to the 1920s, each episode tells the story of a great public statesman-and of the private individual whose passions, hopes, and fears played out within the narrow confines of Number 10.
