Bramwell is back with four new episodes in the lovelorn life of Dr. Eleanor Bramwell. Jemma Redgrave stars as the public health heroine of 1890s London and David Calder is her society doctor dad, Dr. Robert Bramwell.

Life is getting complicated for the Victorian-era feminist physician. Last season saw her fall head over heels for the handsome Dr. Finn O'Neill (Andrew Connolly), who reciprocated with his endearing mix of passion and reserve. It turns out that he has another woman in his life: an American beauty (Paloma Baeza) whom we meet in Episode 1 of the new season. Meanwhile, Eleanor's widower father, Dr. Robert Bramwell (David Calder), is also looking for love and getting encouragement from sensuous dowager Alice Costigan (Maureen Beattie).

Back at the Thrift Free Infirmary for the Deserving Poor, Dr. Joe Marsham (Kevin McMonagle), Nurse Carr (Ruth Sheen), and Sidney Bentley (Ben Brazier) are frantic with work since Eleanor seems to be losing interest in the cause that has always been closest to her heart. Plus someone has been stealing the opium!
