Default Man In The Orange Shirt PBS

Written especially for the screen by prolific, popular British novelist Patrick Gale and premiering Sunday as part of the PBS anthology series “Masterpiece,” “Man in an Orange Shirt” is a moving drama about two love affairs — one just after the Second World War, one in more or less contemporary London — linked by the same third party.

That most of the central characters are gay makes it just a little radical in this context — PBS has appended a disclaimer that “the following drama contains scenes which may not be suitable for all audiences,” which is to say for people who have trouble with same-sex intimacy. (It is not graphic by the standards of contemporary American television.) But even with such relationships no longer uncommon on TV, “Man in an Orange Shirt” still feels refreshingly provocative in its insistence on the ordinariness of gay life.
