An eight-part period-drama adaptation of Jane Austen's final novel, written only months before her death in 1817. Rose Williams and Theo James play the lead characters of Charlotte Heywood and Sidney Parker. The story follows Charlotte as she moves to the quiet fishing village of Sanditon for a fresh start, only to meet Sidney, a charming man who has ambitions to turn the tranquil seaside residence into a luxury resort. Written by Emmy and BAFTA award-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies.
As the summer regatta approaches, the success of the resort hangs in the balance; Sidney wrestles with his feelings toward an old flame.
Charlotte and Sidney join forces to try and rescue Miss Lambe; Tom tries to save Sanditon and his marriage; Edward and Clara devise a plan to seize Lady Denham's legacy.
