    There’s a recent Profumo affair series that aired on BBC last December, The Trial of Christine Keeler. Starring Sophie Cookson as Christine Keeler, Ben Miles as John Profumo, Ellie Bamber as Mandy Rice-Davies (a friend of Christine who was also involved in the scandal), and James Norton as Stephen Ward.

    I originally thought A Very English Scandal was about the Vassall scandal. I could see Jason Isaacs as John Vassall.
