Edward and Mrs Simpson

BROWBEATINGLY PLAY-IT-SAFE dramatisation done on crappy videotape of hush-hush liaison between King Edward VIII (EDWARD FOX) and – oh no! – divorced American Wallis Simpson (CYNTHIA HARRIS). Subsequent abdication “furore” “rocked” “polite” “society”. All whispers of supposed Nazi “sympathies” brushed under very large carpet. Went on for ever. Unlike Edward VIII (ho ho).
