Oscar Wilde sues the Marquis of Queensbury for libel with disastrous results
The screenplay for this drama is based on the play The Stringed Lute by John Furnell. The final scenes where Oscar Wilde leaves England for France take place at London Marylebone station, and although a rake of suburban coaches is prominent, the loco is not visible. For a scene supposedly taking place in 1897 the coaches are wholly inaccurate, though a degree of authenticity is lent by the LC&DR lettering on one.
