The third series lottery winners are the employees of a crumbling mansion near Scarborough.

Lord Hazelwood is kind but an invalid, and his bossy wife and spoiled son Spencer run the house and pay poor wages because the family is in debt.

To make money, the Hazelwoods host a group of visiting Americans, and during their stay, the six employees, who are members of a lottery syndicate, discover they have won £ 14 million.

But then Amy disappears …

Another impressive cast are Lenny Henry, Elizabeth Berrington, Melanie Hill, Polly Walker and Anthony Andrews.
