Decline and Fall is based on the acclaimed novel by Evelyn Waugh and the first television adaptation of the 1928 satire, marking 50 years since the author's death.
Paul Pennyfeather, a dedicated divinity student set upon a quiet life of contemplation as a priest, is unceremoniously expelled from Oxford University through no fault of his own. This kickstarts a series of disastrous events that no-one, least of all Paul, could have anticipated. Without a private fortune to fall back on, Paul is forced to take a position as a teacher at a substandard boarding school in rural Wales. All too quickly it becomes apparent that Paul is not a natural disciplinarian. He finds scant comfort in drinking – to excess – with the other teachers.
Things start to look up, however, when Paul meets Margot Beste-Chetwynde, a wealthy widow and a mother to one of the boys at the school. Could it be that the attraction Paul feels for Margot is returned? Could his fortunes be changing?
Starring: Jack Whitehall (Bad Education, Fresh Meat), Douglas Hodge (The Night Manager, Catastrophe), Stephen Graham (This is England), Vincent Franklin, with David Suchet (Poirot), Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives) and Matthew Beard (The Imitation Game).
