Mr Fielding's Scandal Shop

In 1737, Henry Fielding, author of Tom Jones and scourge of Walpole's corrupt parliament, astonished the world by rejoining the Establishment. London's most infamous libertine became a magistrate - outlawing plays and players. But at what cost, to himself and to those who had loved and admired him?
