Whilst would-be killer Andrew Newton is caught, claiming that he was hired by persons unknown, Norman persists in his accusations that Jeremy employed him and has their love letters published, forcing Jeremy's resignation. Jeremy also loses his seat at the general election and is charged with conspiracy to murder. He is defended by the unconventional George Carman, who refuses to let him testify and fiercely attacks prosecution witness Peter Bessell and Norman himself. A summing up by a less than impartial judge also contributes to the jury's verdict though for the triumphant party it may be seen as a Pyrrhic victory.

Ben Wishaw (Norman Scott) is seen sitting on the top deck of a number 23 bus passing what is clearly intended to be Jeremy Thorpe's real residence, a flat at Orme Court on Bayswater Road, London W2. The 23 bus route was introduced in 1992, some 13 years after the Jeremy Thorpe trial was conducted. In 1979 the only double-decker London Transport bus routes passing Thorpe's flat were the number 12 and the number 88. The number 23 was introduced as a variant of the number 15 route and passed through Bayswater from Shepherds Bush to East Ham along Westbourne Grove, to the north. See more

Rupert, darling, I want you to take that piece of toast and eat it in your room. There's a good boy.
Technically he was "Bunny", singular.
Then why did you say "Bunnies"? Were there two of you? Are *you* a Bunny? Am I married to a Bunny?
No, I was using a generic noun in an imperative clause.
