I’ve just watched this television series. I tuned in because I like the director’s films (Philomena, The Queen, etc), but Hugh Grant’s performance quickly became the real draw card. Grant communicates the complexity of the main character (20th century UK politician Jeremy Thorpe) flawlessly. A story that if it were fiction would be dismissed as unbelievable becomes a very accurate refection of what did happen. Grant, like everything associated with this series, delivers his role with the comedy that comes with reflecting on the true story with the benefit of hindsight. What could have been a simple historical recreation becomes instead a very entertaining insight into the manners and morals of a certain type of life in the UK 50 years ago. Oddly, I’ve never really ‘got’ Grant before in the films of his that I’ve seen, but now I fully understand and appreciate his undoubted talented.

After "Maurice" movie, there is "the very English scandal" 😆
Hugh: '.... at the trial, the guy giving evidence, saying "I had to bite the pillow"...' Mel B: 'so, did he actually get killed?'

It's beautiful...

EXCELLENT job Sir! I was impressed by this mini series. And I love him in every one of his films and interviews, just brilliant!

These 2 broads come out as outrageously ignorant. (I bet they don't even have any idea how to spell the word "outrageously" in the first place!) Thery came to this interview (the older one seems just rushed from her bed after a casual night of booze or drugs) with a piece of paper handed out to them by the show producer or whoever else might have been on the set that early (way too early for either of them!) morning. Disgusting.

AVES is fabulous and Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw give excellent performances. Despite being based on a true story about an attempted murder, it is VERY funny.

It is an excellent drama, a dark comedy. Hugh is excellent, so against his normal RomCom roles. Mel B not knowing about this isn't a surprise. Can't listen to her without thinking of Keith Lemon's impression of her :)

Just because Mel B never heard of it doesnt mean she is dumb I am 49 and I never heard the Jeremy Thorpe trial either.

But, I'd never heard of it either & I'd say I'm quite intelligent. :D As Hugh implied, it really has a lot to do with when you were born. Under 45yr olds (like her) are excused. My parents, however, knew & told me about this epic scandal of its time.
