MISS SCARLET AND THE DUKE

Meet 19th Century London’s First-Ever Female Detective…

Epic Drama, home to the very best period drama series from around the globe, brings you the new and exclusive, fast-paced crime series, Miss Scarlet And The Duke, premiering Tuesdays, 21:00 (CET) from 15th September. Lead protagonist, Eliza Scarlet is an educated, fearless, young woman played by Kate Phillips (Wolf Hall, Peaky Blinders, The Crown, Downton Abbey movie), and she stars alongside Stuart Martin (Babylon, Jamestown, Medici: Masters of Florence) as consummate rogue, The Duke.

When Eliza's father dies, he leaves her penniless in a time where marriage is the only option for financial security.  But headstrong Eliza, has an ace up her bonnet - her father's business, a detective agency. But it's Victorian London and to operate in this man's world, she needs a male partner.  The Duke, Eliza’s envisioned partner in crime is a Detective Inspector for Scotland Yard, who as a young boy was mentored by her father. He’s a gambler, a drinker and a womaniser but he is genuinely fond of Eliza who he shares an almost sibling like bond, but with an underlying sizzling attraction.

Also supporting Eliza as she sets out to become 19th century London’s first female detective, are Moses (Ansu Kabia) and Rupert Parker (Andrew Gower). Moses works at a night club in Soho and has come to London from Jamaica for a new beginning. While their first encounter doesn’t make for a good start, they eventually form an unlikely alliance. And Rupert Parker is a wealthy young man, whose domineering mother is extremely displeased about her only son’s unmarried status and forces him to propose to Eliza. Clearly terrified of his mother, Rupert confides in Eliza that he doesn’t want to be married and the two bond over the fact that they both crave independence and soon discover a different way for them to form a partnership.

The gripping and endearing, six-part series, follows the fiery relationship between Eliza and Duke as they team up to solve a new puzzling crime in each episode, set in the murkiest depths of 1880s London. With her inquisitive mind, Miss Scarlet has always been more interested in running her late father's detective agency than behaving like a proper lady. But nothing has prepared her for the dangers she is about to face as a woman in the murder investigation trade.

Miss Scarlet and The Duke premieres exclusively on Epic Drama across Central and Eastern Europe, Tuesdays, 21:00 (CET) from 15th September.

1/0

Written by acclaimed playwright and screenwriter, Moira Bufni (Jane Eyre, Tamara Drewe) and created by Moira Bufni and Alison Newman, Harlots is the frst commission for Monumental Pictures, the independent company founded by Oscar nominated producers Alison Owen (Suffragette, Tulip Fever) and Debra Hayward (Bridget Jones’s Baby, Les Misérables).

In 1760s London there were brothels on every corner run by women who were both enterprising and tenacious. History has largely ignored them, but their stories are in turn outrageous, brutal, humorous and real.
