ITV: if it's not Simon Cowell related it's a period drama of some form. Preferably starring Sheridan Smith. This time around it's a period adaptation of the Daphne du Maurier novel The Scapegoat. The autumn of 1952. George VI has died, and England waits to welcome its new monarch. Meanwhile, worlds away, John Standing teaches Greek in a shabby prep school. Or at least he did until yesterday. With his department unceremoniously done away with, John decides to visit the continent in search of culture, adventure... anything to get him away from the crushing monotony of his life. And then he meets his doppleganger - who just happens to be an aristocrat. Think Kevin Klein in Dave.
