The Mystery of Edwin Drood DVD
Classic BBC adaptation of Dickens' drama.
Matthew Rhys, Freddie Fox, Tamzin Merchant |
Featuring a stellar cast including Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Freddie Fox (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and Tamzin Merchant (Jane Eyre), Dickens' darkest novel is chillingly adapted for the screen by Gwyneth Hughes.
Fuelled by hatred and opium addiction, choirmaster John Jasper has visions of strangling his debauched nephew Edwin Drood and being with the object of his desire and obsession, Drood's beautiful fiance Rosa Bud.
As events unfold Jasper's sanity is pushed to the limit and when Drood disappears all may not be what it seems in this highly atmospheric gothic mystery.
