This is an absorbing six-part chronicle of the abdication of Britain's King Edward VIII to marry a twice-divorced American, Wallis Simpson. Edward (Day of the Jackal) Fox is fascinating as the charming but weak-willed Duke of Windsor, and American actress Cynthia Harris is a remarkable lookalike as Wally. The remaining five weekly segments will air subsequent Wednesdays.
