Episode 3

The Braithwaites were stunned that the Eurolottery was taking Dame Alison (Amanda Redman) to court because her underage daughter illegally bought her winning lottery ticket. But everyone reckons she'll get off if she lies about who bought the ticket. And, as her viperish daughter Virginia points out, she's very good at lying. However, the whole vile, selfish family falls to pieces when events take a surprising turn. This is a powerful, engrossing episode, although there's a fantasy sequence involving Virginia that jars rather than enhances. A heavily pregnant Alison takes the stand at the High Court after the press finds out that her under-age daughter bought the winning ticket.
