Episode Summary

The Forsyte Saga: Series I (1)
The series opens its 32nd season witha a high-gloss remake of John Galsworthy's Victorian-family soap opera.

The first Forsyte Saga (which premiered on U.S. public TV in 1969) followed the often overlapping romantic affairs of one aristocratic (and very money conscious) London family for 26 episodes. Here it's seven, and in Part 1, young Jolyon Forsyte (Rupert Graves) dumps his wife for his daughter's governess (Amanda Ooms). Later, Jolyon's cousin, Soames (Damian Lewis), and austere lawyer, falls madly for Irene Heron (Gina McKee)--who is cash-poor, but just not attracted to him.moreless
