Each series follows a different group of people who pool together and win on a single ticket, leading to major upheavals in their previously regular lives. Series One follows five people working at a struggling supermarket in the city of Leeds, in West Yorkshire. With five episodes in each series, each episode focuses on a single main character. Bob Timothy Spall is the store manager, a kindly gent planning his retirement. Stuart Matthew MacNulty is a young man trying to support his wife and family. Jamie Matthew Lewis is Stuart's less than ethical brother, and a bad influence on his struggling sibling.
The once impressive Hazelwood Manor has fallen into disrepair. Lord Hazelwood Anthony Andrews is fading fast, but Lady Hazelwood Alice Krige seems more concerned with maintaining the lifestyle she's become accustomed to whilst his stepson Spencer seems intent on spending his inheritance as quickly as possible. Godfrey formed the lottery syndicate with his colleagues years ago as he was convinced he could work out how to win it mathematically. As the series opens he is certain he's finally cracked the system. An unexpected call interrupts the Christmas festivities. A group of midwives have been requested to travel out to South Africa to work at Hope Clinic and help save it. The Nonnatus team face big challenges when they travel to Africa to try to save Hope Clinic, which is in danger of closure.
