Damian Baxter is hugely wealthy and dying. He lives alone in a big house in Surrey, looked after by a chauffeur, butler, cook and housemaid. He has but one concern - his fortune in excess of 500 million and who should inherit it on his death. PAST IMPERFECT is the story of a quest. Damian Baxter wishes to know if he has a living heir. By the time he married in his late thirties he was sterile (the result of adult mumps), but what about before that unfortunate illness? He was not a virgin. Had he sired a child? A letter from a girlfriend from these times suggests he did. But the letter is anonymous. Damian contacts someone he knew from their days at university. He gives him a list of girls he slept with and sets him a task: find his heir!

Author Biography - Julian Fellowes

Julian Fellowes, actor, writer, director, producer and TV presenter, was educated at Ampleforth, Cambridge and Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. As an actor he is probably best known for his portrayal of the incorrigible Lord Kilwillie in the BBC's 'Monarch of the Glen', as well as film roles in 'Shadowlands' with Anthony Hopkins, 'Damage' with Jeremy Irons and 'Tomorrow Never Dies' with Pierce Brosnan. As a writer for TV, he is responsible for the Emmy winning 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' and the BAFTA nominated 'The Prince and the Pauper', which he also produced. His first screenplay for the cinema was 'Gosford Park', directed by Robert Altman, which won a plethora of prizes, not least the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. He also wrote the screenplay for the recent version of 'Vanity Fair', starring Reese Witherspoon, and 'The Young Victoria', currently in post-production. His debut as a director, 'Separate Lies', was released to acclaim in 2006. As well as his novel 'Snobs', he has written a children's book, and the book for the musical of 'Mary Poppins' for Disney. Julian is married to Emma, nee Kitchener, and they have one son, Peregrine.
