Bleak House: Special Edition

It has always been recognized as one of Charles Dickens's literary masterworks, but this Bleak House is now fast moving, daring, gripping television. Here is the murder mystery, the love story, the comic genius and the tantalizing scandal of the novel but, stripped of its sentimentality, we find ourselves swept along by a pulsating and edgy drama.

Out of an interminable court case spin three young people, each searching for their place in the world. The story moves fast - swirling through a incredible array of characters from passionate young lovers to ruthless lawyers, from an iced-cold aristocratic beauty to a shrewd, relentless detective - until the final thrilling climax.

With a screenplay by Andrew Davies (Pride And Prejudice with Colin Firth), Bleak House features a galaxy of major stars including Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) and Charles Dance (Gosford Park) and brings this timeless classic to life like never before.
