Grand Complete Collection, The
As the most opulent hotel in Manchester, England, during the decadent Roaring 20s, The Grand is more than a building. Its a nexus for schemes, scandals, romance, and intrigue. For owner John Bannerman, The Grand symbolises a tradition of luxury and elegance begun by his father. For Marcus Bannerman, it becomes a risky investment and a way to entice his brothers wife into bed. And for the maids and porters employed there, it represents a possible escape from their hardscrabble pasts and an endless source of backstairs gossip.Written by Russell T Davies (Dr Who, Casanova, Touching Evil) and featuring three-time Emmy® winner Susan Hampshire, this is addictive period drama in the tradition of Upstairs, Downstairs and The Duchess of Duke Street and The Forsyte Saga. Divided by class and circumstance or tied together by love and loyalty, the myriad characters who populate The Grand prove unforgettable.
