More new faces are joining next year, like Lady Montrose (Emma Fielding, Years and YearsVan der Valk), who is the quintessential Austen mother. She arrives in Sanditon with one objective: matches for her children, Lydia and Henry. Lydia (Alice Orr- Ewing, AndorA Very English Scandal) is an independent young woman who is not as eager for a match as her mother, while Lord Henry Montrose (Edward Davis, Emma) is charismatic and confident, but he holds a secret.

There’s also Rowleigh Pryce (James Bolam, New Tricks), a wealthy, curmudgeonly investor who is interested in teaming up with Tom Parker on the seaside resort’s expansion. Their plans become complicated when Rowleigh runs into Lady Denham. Also new to Sanditon is Alexander’s brother, Samuel Colbourne (Liam Garrigan, CobraSmall Axe) – a lawyer, and a charming bachelor.
