Show Synopsis

Emmy and Bafta-winning writer Andrew Davies brings Jane Austen’s unfinished last novel vividly to life. Sanditon’s a place that’s changing fast.

This once sleepy fishing village is transforming into a fashionable spa resort. Changing alongside it is the impulsive and unconventional Charlotte Heywood, who swaps her quiet rural home for the intrigues and dalliances of a seaside town on the make.

The plot twists and turns as it exposes the hidden agendas of characters whose fortunes depend on Sanditon’s commercial success. People such as the visionary entrepreneur Tom Parker, mixed-race heiress Miss Lambe, and charismatic but complicated Sidney Parker. Follow Charlotte’s journey to discover herself – and find love on her own terms.
