Premise: Reggie was supposed to inherit an Earldom, but only receives his childhood home - Strictland - and a tresspasser calling herself Lady Alys running things. At thirty-seven, and suffering blackouts from alcholism, he decides it's time for a change. It's heartbreaking as he has setbacks. Lady Alys has 3 young wards depending on her, too.

The Good: Just so well done.
