Drama, Period and Historical
Dido is the illegitimate Black mixed-race daughter of a Royal Navy admiral in the 18th Century, who is brought as a child to be raised in the aristocratic home of her white great-uncle and his wife. Her lineage leaves her an outsider – too high in rank to eat with the servants but too low to eat with the family, and left on the sidelines as her cousin Elizabeth seeks suitors for marriage. When she meets an idealistic young vicar’s son who is caught up in a legal battle over a sunken slave ship, she is drawn to his passion for changing society, and questions her own place within it even more. Jane Austen-style romance and politics blend in this absorbing costume drama.
