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.

Sarah has died, and left an item to Tony in her will: a mysterious diary that’s currently in the possession of Sarah’s daughter Veronica (Charlotte Rampling), and which she refuses to send to him….
