Set in the waning days of the Edwardian England and on the cusp of World War One, Parade’s End follows the saga of Christopher Tietjens (Benedict Cumberbatch), a repressed aristocrat caught between the perils of a loveless marriage with cruel socialite wife Sylvia (Rebecca Hall) and the unrequited love of Valentine, a young suffragette (Adelaide Clemens). The series also stars British actors Rupert Everett and Miranda Richardson.
