Teenager Penelope (Sophie Thompson, the younger sister of Emma) lives in the twentieth century but when she goes to live with her aunt at Thackers, a remote ancient Derbyshire farmhouse, she finds herself travelling back in time to the Elizabethan era.

There she joins the lives of the notorious Babington family and finds herself caught up in treason against Queen Elizabeth I by a Catholic faction supportive of Mary Queen of Scots (Heather Chasen), and plotting her rescue to restore her to the throne.
