Wilkie Collins is hot. One of the most underrated Victorian mystery writers Collins offers up eerie evocative tales. While The Moonstone may be his best-known novel (it was made into a 1996 telefilm starring Sense and Sensibility's Greg Wise) The Woman in White is an equally affecting and engaging tale. A timeless gothic story it is told from the perspective of Marian (Tara Fitzgerald) who's staying at a villa with her cousin Laura (Justine Waddell). The women become involved with a sympathetic painter and a slew of duplicitous aristocrats including one played by James Wilby. Then there's that woman (who looks a lot like Laura) cloaked in white who keeps running around the garden grounds at night. Fitzgerald is far too gorgeous to be the plain Marian heroine of the novel but costumers make a valiant--if unsuccessful--attempt to make her look dowdy and less attractive than Waddell. Fitzgerald is so lovely and likable that audiences are easily drawn into her predicament. Who is the mysterious woman in white? How and why has Laura disappeared? Simon Callow is particularly notable as the suave Count Fosco who may or may not be who he seems to be. The Woman in White was made into a 1982 miniseries and five other film versions. Trivia note: Ian Richardson appears in both the 1982 version and this one. Starring Tara Fitzgerald James Wilby Simon Callow Ian Richardson and Andrew Lincoln A two hour TV verison of the Wilkie Coliins mystery thriller with Simon Callow playing Count Fosco as he now does in the stage musical.

Critics hailed the entire cast’s strong performances, with Fitzgerald praised as “perfect” (The Boston Globe), while Ian Richardson (House of Cards) as the invalid uncle and Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral) as the sinister Count Fosco delivered “mesmerizing turns” (The New York Times).
