After period drama Call The Midwife, we have this new 2 part period drama based on Sebastian Faulks' novel. Yes, BBC1 is spoiling us. Eddie Redmayne (My Week With Marilyn, Richard II) and Clemence Poesy (28 Days Later, Harry Potter) star as the passionate young lovers brought together by love and torn apart by the First World War. They begin an illicit and all-consuming affair, with huge consequences for them both. Years later in 1916, Stephen finds himself serving on the Western Front in the very area where he experienced his great love. As he battles amidst the horror of the trenches he meets Jack Firebrace, a tunneller who unexpectedly helps him endure the ravages of war and enables him to make peace with his feelings for Isabelle, who he is destined to meet again. Adapted by Abi Morgan, writer of The Hour and current box office fodder The Iron Lady.
