A BBC dramatisation of George Eliot's classic novel about the lives and loves of a group of people living on the cusp of the Industrial Revolution in a small town named Middlemarch. These include young Doctor Lydgate (Douglas Hodge), who arrives at Middlemarch hospital full of idealism and determined to do good works; Dorothea Brooke (Juliet Aubrey), who becomes attracted to the scholarly Edward Casaubon (Patrick Malahide) and then finds herself trapped in an ill-fated marriage; and Will Ladislaw (Rufus Sewell), a young lad who awakens Dorothea's repressed passion and thereby changes the course of her life.

Another excellent production by the BBC.
My only critism is that the BBC should mark the DVD,s so we know that there are multiple episodes.
The story is true to the book, and worth owning.
Very happy with my purchase
