BBC Classic Serials..Best Of,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Woman in White [DVD]  (DVD)
I watched this serialisation of Wilkie Collins in 1982, when it was first transmitted. It held me spellbound throughout each episode. My only regret at the time was that I didn't possess a video recorder. It prompted me to read the book, equally spellbinding and, as I discovered, very close to the BBC adaptation, from the evil Count Fosco (Alan Badel), the enchanting Laura (Jenny Seagrove), Ian Richardson as a very convincing valetudinarian Mr Fairlie, and Georgine Anderson as the icy Madame Fosco..indeed all the characters are brilliantly cast.
This DVD has been top of my "wanted" list for many years. I'm delighted that it is at last available. This rather stingy Scotsman (!) would have happily parted with double or treble the purchase price in order to obtain a copy. Need I say more?
Thank you Amazon.
