Episode 2

In the tale of equine love, Marengo faces being put to stud, whilst Copenhagen discovers literature. Stars Stephen Fry. From January 2014.

By Robbie Hudson and Marie Phillips

Stephen Fry and Daniel Rigby star as Napoleon's horse Marengo and Wellington's horse Copenhagen, with an introduction by Tamsin Greig, in the world's first epistolary equine love story.

Still cruelly sundered by fate despite the war having ended, Marengo is put rather unwillingly out to stud and discovers the overwhelming and exhausting joys of parenthood, and Copenhagen finds a new way of passing the time - writing racy horse fan fiction, a genre for which he turns out to have a remarkable flair...

Produced by Gareth Edwards.
