What can we expect from this episode

Cary Grant, a 58-year-old divorcee living in Los Angeles, is feeling lonely. We rewind to his difficult upbringing as Archie Leach in Victorian-era Bristol, where he had a father who bullied him and a mother who was mourning the death of his older brother.

The Pender Troupe are acrobats who perform at the Bristol Hippodrome; Archie’s father, Elias, informs him that his mother has died and sends him to live with his grandmother. Soon after, Archie forms a new “family” with them. Adolescent Archie’s excitement at performing in front of an audience is chronicled as he travels to New York with the Pender Troupe.

He is so enchanted by America and its people that he refuses to return home when his time here is up, saying that he has no reason to leave.

However, in 1962, the world’s most famous film star, Cary Grant, is enchanted by a stunning young actress named Dyan Cannon whom he initially sees on television. Stanley Fox, his agent, helps him track her down, and he eventually convinces Dyan to meet him at his bungalow on the Universal Studios lot. Her contagious laughter and stunning smile give Dyan the much-needed breath of fresh air.

Cary breaks the news that he’s fallen in love again while shooting “North by Northwest” with Alfred Hitchcock. Dyan attends Cary’s house in Benedict Canyon, where they sing a duet, have a good laugh, and Dyan gets a taste of Cary’s peculiar eating habits. His announcement that he doesn’t want children surprises her because he clearly doesn’t want to bring them into his world.

The series features Jason Isaacs as Cary Grant, Laura Aikman as Dyan Cannon, Cary’s formidable ex-wife and an actress and filmmaker, and Harriet Walter as Elsie Leach, Cary’s mother. Aikman has appeared in Not Going Out, Gavin and Stacey, and Succession. Walter has also appeared in Ted Lasso, Killing Eve, and Succession.

Kara Tointon (Mr. Selfridge, The Halcyon, Sound of Music Live) portrays Elsie, while Calam Lynch (Bridgerton), Oaklee Pendergast (Home), and Dainton Anderson (Patrick Melrose) portray younger versions of Archie Leach.

Archie will tell the story of Cary Grant’s life, from his humble beginnings as Archibald Alexander Leach in Bristol, UK, to the leading man he became in later life.
