Set in the 1800’s, Hunderby follows Helene, a shipwreck survivor washed ashore near a small English village. There, she is swept off her feet by widowed pastor Edmund and the two soon marry, the puritanical Edmund believing his bride to be untouched by another man. But she has a history, a dark past that she cannot escape. As Helene moves into Edmund’s home, she falls under the watchful eye of housekeeper Dorothy who is more than a little involved in her master’s life, and quite obsessed with his dead first wife, Arabelle – to whom Helene simply does not compare. While Helene battles to keep her past a secret, she must navigate Dorothy’s devious scheming, her husband’s harsh critique and a potential new love interest. The comedy series stars Julia Davis, Alexandra Roach, Alex MacQueen, Rufus Jones, Rosie Cavaliero, Jane Stanness, Rosalind Knight, Rebekah Staton, Ben Bishop, Alexander Armstrong, Daniel Lawrence Taylor and Kevin Eldon.
