Broadbent’s Tony lives alone, and though he’s mostly retired, he owns a little Leica shop, where he sells and fixes vintage cameras. He’s still friends with his ex-wife Margaret (Harriet Walter), and the two of them are preparing to welcome their first grandchild; their daughter Susie (Michelle Dockery) is about to become a single mother.
