Lorna Doone (BBC Drama, Amelia Warner, Richard Coyle)



Period drama Lorna Doone was set in 17th Century Exmoor, where John Ridd (Richard Coyle) and Lorna Doone (Amelia Warner), whose families are involved in a long running feud (John Ridd’s father was killed by the Doones and he had sworn revenge), fall in love.

This was a no expense spared version and had a rugged muddy realistic feel to it.
