We all love a classy period adaptation and this gripping new version of Wilkie Collins’ spine-chilling novel is an absolute treat.

The engrossing mystery sees ex-EastEnders star Ben Hardy take centre stage as artist Walter Hartright, whose moonlit meeting on a London heath with a distressed woman dressed in white changes his life for ever.

As he takes a job in Cumberland teaching painting to forthright Marian Halcombe (a brilliant turn from Jessie Buckley) and her sister Laura Fairlie (Olivia Vinall), he finds both romance and heartache in abundance.

How are his new pupils linked to the woman in white and why does she spell danger for
them all?
