If Downton Abbey leaves you craving more Edwardian melodrama, here’s your fix.

If Downton Abbey leaves you craving more Edwardian melodrama, here’s your fix. This five-part miniseries is less soapy than Downton but traverses similar terrain, using a quartet of Ford Madox Ford novels as source material, plus a Tom Stoppard screenplay. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as a young British aristocrat trapped in an unhappy marriage to a callous, cuckolding socialite (Rebecca Hall). A triangle forms when his dormant passions are stirred, on the eve of World War I, by an alluring young suffragette (Adelaide Clemens). Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 9 p.m., HBO
