—Ruth Wilson Stars in This Three-Part Drama That Tells the Story of Her Own Grandmother—
Meet Alison Wilson, a recent widow who discovers her spy novelist husband lived a double life. Determined to uncover the truth about the man she loved, she soon finds herself at the center of a mystery that proves truth can be stranger than fiction.
Episode 1 and Episode 2 repeat Sunday, Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. - Alec and Alison Wilson marry after meeting in the secret service during World War II. Two decades later, spy novelist Alec dies, and his real story begins to emerge. Alison tracks down his former partner, who was also deceived by Alec’s charms.
Episode 3 repeats Sunday, Jan. 5 at 10 p.m. - Alec’s handler in the secret service drops a bombshell, but is it the truth or another lie? Resigned to uncertainty about the past, Alison receives a final surprise.
“I am so excited to bring to the small screen the extraordinary lives of my grandparents,” said Wilson. “Theirs is a profoundly moving story and MASTERPIECE on PBS is the perfect home for it.”
