Synopsis

Edward and Mrs. Simpson was the six-part TV follow-up to the syndicated miniseries Edward the King. Produced in England, this elaborately crafted historical drama stars Edward Fox as King Edward VII, who gives up the throne for "the woman I love," American divorcee Wallis Warfield (Cynthia Harris). The couple's relationship virtually tore England apart in 1936, with the King and his lady becoming political pawns for pro- and anti-marriage factions in Parliament. Perhaps wisely, the series does not delve into the potentially disastrous consequences had the reportedly pro-German Edward been the reigning monarch during World War II. Marius Goring and Peggy Ashcroft co-star as Edward's mother and father, King George V and Queen Mary. Syndicated in January of 1980, Edward and Mrs. Simpson was originally telecast minus commercial interruptions by the "Mobil Showcase Network." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
