A reserved curator (Trevor Eve) from London's National Gallery is made responsible for the safe and secret storage of priceless paintings in rural Wales. Soon he finds it difficult to keep his low profile, as well as his secret, from the local villagers. Also starring Eve Myles (Torchwood).
An eccentric Welsh village learns that London’s National Gallery is storing its entire art collection in a nearby mine during the museum’s renovations - leading to curious encounters between the village locals and the gallery’s urbane, lovelorn curator. Trevor Eve (MASTERPIECE David Copperfield) and Eve Myles (MASTERPIECE Little Dorrit) star in this gentle comedy, based on Frank Cottrell Boyce’s best-selling novel. David Tennant hosts.
