The Mystery Of Edwin Drood

Preview by Jack Foley

CHARLES Dickens’ The Mystery Of Edwin Drood is as enigmatic in real life as it is in fiction; the author’s death before its completion makes this early and fine example of a murder mystery even more of a whodunit? And the 2012 BBC television adaptation, featuring an all-star cast, is as gothic as Dickens gets. Now it is set to get its first ever DVD release courtesy of Second Sight.

Featuring a stellar cast including Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Freddie Fox (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and Tamzin Merchant (Jane Eyre), Dickens’ darkest novel is chillingly adapted for the screen by Gwyneth Hughes. It originally aired on BBC Two and now it is set for its DVD release on November 6, 2017.

Fuelled by hatred and opium addiction, choirmaster John Jasper has visions of strangling his debauched nephew Edwin Drood and being with the object of his desire and obsession, Drood’s beautiful fiancé Rosa Bud.

As events unfold Jasper’s sanity is pushed to the limit and when Drood disappears all may not be what it seems in this highly atmospheric gothic mystery.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a captivating, dark slice of Dickensian drama.
