Hooten and The Lady Plot: What is it about?
The prime focus of Hooten and The Lady’s structure is on both the fearless character’s exhilarating quest on finding the hidden treasures of the earth and their adulation for mythical ancient antiquities, and its traces which are unknown to the common masses. The female lead Lady Alexandra is a determined, passionate British Museum Curator who travels to the Amazon forest on the lookout for the lost camp of Victorian voyager Percy Fawcett.
She partners with the American explorer Hooten, and later, they both encounter the legend El Dorado also known as the golden king of the South African city Johannesburg. It is mostly recognized as a modern-day El Dorado, due to the tremendously huge gold deposit discovered along the Witwatersrand on which it is based. Both the characters Hooten and Lady Alexandra have to go through a lot of unusual obstacles along with their contrasting personalities, where the two have to stick to and support each other throughout the dreadfully long pilgrimages that they have yet to venture on the globe.
Lady is a very smart, knowledgeable, seemingly of determined nature, seeking various escapades and puts her marriage on hold with her fiancé Edward. He has some repeated appearances in the show. Hooten is a man with effortless communication skills but has a dark and impulsive nature and always felt quite rejected by life.
Although, it is speculated that there are no romantic feelings shared by the two; they only have a relationship formed on the foundation of their astonishing drive to chase after the globe’s mythical wonders. Both serve and compensate for each other’s shortcomings in times of necessity. Their similar endeavors are supported by other characters like Ella Bond and Clive Stephenson in the series.
