"To the manner born, it is a custom more honoured in the breach than the observance”

Sundays 7.30pm Channel 008

Taking its name from a Shakespeare quote – a play on the line “though I am a native here and to the manner born, it is a custom more honoured in the breach than the observance” from Hamlet – TO THE MANOR BORN finds Penelope Keith starring as Audrey fforbes-Hamilton, an upper-class woman who is forced to move out of her manor estate to the old lodge following the death of her husband.

Along with her butler and her beloved Rolls-Royce, Audrey continues to try and live the high life, even after the estate is bought by wealthy supermarket owner Richard DeVere (Peter Bowles).
