I read that one of the major differences in the TV adaptation is that in reality Ruth Wilson's grandmother only knew about the first wife and found out later that she and Alexander never divorced.

I think showing Alison finding out about the other three women added to the drama and was a valid variation on the way events really unfolded. It was Michael who initiated the search for his father when he discovered that the story his mother had told him about his father did not tally.
