Season 1
Episode 8

Following a four-week journey north from Paris to Copenhagen chaperoning Miss Sophie Ferrall (the flirtatious sister of the aristocratic Countess Blucher), Anne Lister finds that the doors of Danish high society open effortlessly for her. Her delight in her glittering surroundings, along with her charisma and eccentricity, win her an audience with Queen Marie, who invites her to her birthday ball, where she will be obliged to dress entirely in white. Despite the pleasure Anne takes in all this, it's clear that inside she still struggles with the crushing disappointment of her estrangement from Ann Walker. When difficult news arrives from home, Anne is faced with a decision: whether to stay where she has found acceptance and appreciation, or to dutifully go home, back to where her heart was broken. In Scotland, a shocking discovery about Captain Sutherland leads Ann Walker to make a bold resolution about her own future, while an unexpected visitor at Upper Southolm Farm threatens to finally expose Thomas Sowden's macabre secret.
