The Aftermath

Rosamund Pike reads from Hallie Rubenhold's account of the marriage of Sir Richard and Lady Worsley, the details of whose private life scandalised 18th-century society when they were revealed in court.

Lady Worsley celebrates her court victory and continues in her attempts to publicly humiliate Sir Richard, but Bisset leaves her when she is pregnant and she is left alone and in debt.
