A synopsis for the first episode reads: "Yorkshire, 1834.

"Learning of their plan to co-habit, Miss Walker’s protective tribe of relations are increasingly suspicious of Anne Lister’s motives, but can’t find the right words to express their fears about the nature of their relationship. Anne is keen to strengthen their commitment by changing their wills in each other’s favour, but Ann Walker is nervous of braving public opinion further.

"While the couple prepare for a fabulous honeymoon abroad, devastated Mariana Lawton’s (Lydia Leonard) jealousy signals more trouble ahead."
