Wives And Daughters (BBC-1 1999, Keeley Hawes, Justine Waddell)

Period drama serial Wives And Daughters took us to the early 19th century where Molly Gibson has her world turned around when her father remarries. She finds herself with a new mother in Hyacinth Gibson and a beautiful but flighty step sister Cynthia. Both Cynthia and Molly both fall for Roger Hamley (who only has eyes for Cynthia).

From the team behind Pride and Prejudice, this visually stunning story of romance, scandal and the intrigues of English family life is based on Elizabeth Gaskell’s humorous and endearing novel, adapted by Andrew Davies and produced by Sue Birtwistle.
