The disgraced British politician who faked his own death and fled to Melbourne

This fascinating true story documents how the infamous politician faked his own death, leaving behind his loving wife and children. Also starring Keeley Hawes (The Durrells, Spooks) and Kevin McNally (Doctor Who, Pirates of the Caribbean).
