Summary:
This set includes 2 thrilling adaptations of Wilkie Collins' mysteries: The Woman in White and The Moonstone. The Woman in White: Set in the late 19th century, this adaptation of Wilkie Collins' mystery thriller is a slowly unraveling nightmare that reveals a dark world of powerful and dangerous men. A young drawing master, Mr. Hartright (Andrew Lincoln), is hired by the fretful Mr. Fairlie (Ian Richardson) to teach his two nieces, Marian (Tara Fitzgerald) and Laura (Justine Waddell). On his way to their house, Hartright is startled by a mysterious encounter with a ghostly woman dressed in white. When he meets Fairlie's nieces, he is struck by Laura's resemblance to the woman in white, and tells Marian and Laura of the ethereal woman. Determined to learn all they can about the woman in white, the girls find themselves drawn into a vortex of secrets, crime and treacherous involvement with the fascinating, but sinister, Count Fosco (Simon Callow). The Moonstone: This sumptuous adaptation of Wilkie Collins' classic mystery, based on the first detective novel ever written, tells the story of the Moonstone. A sacred Hindu diamond, the Moonstone was stolen in 1799 from the head of the Moon God, and is said to be cursed if it is removed from the shrine. In 1846, the thief, John Herncastle, visits his sister to wish his niece, Rachel, a happy birthday. His sister refuses to see him, and he vows that he will always remember his niece's birthday - a vow which later takes on sinister undertones.
