Not all villains wear black...
On his last night in London, Walter Hartright’s life is changed forever after a chance encounter with a mysterious woman, dressed in white and in deep distress. Travelling north, Hartright takes up a post as a drawing master to Laura Fairlie, a beautiful woman bearing an astonishing resemblance to the woman in white.
Soon Hartfield, Laura and her half-sister Marian, find themselves drawn into to the sinister intrigues of Sir Percival Glyde and his charming friend Count Fosco, a man with a taste for white mice and vanilla bonbons. Only by unravelling the mystery woman’s dark secret can they escape from the web of deceit closing around them. Chilling, thrilling and filled with suspense and twists, this compelling BBC adaptation perfectly recreates the intrigue and drama of a story credited as the first and ¬greatest “Sensation Novel”.

“This is a masterpiece for each character is so well cast as if Mr Collins picked them himself. I have waited so long for this TV series to come out in DVD form (and I campaigned for it) and now have to wait for it to appear in Region 1. It is a film to be savoured and it shall remain with you.”
