Set in 1820 against the forbidding backdrop of windswept Cornish moors, the story follows the journey of young and spirited Mary (Brown Findlay) who is forced to live with her Aunt Patience (Whalley) after the death of her mother. Mary arrives at the isolated Jamaica Inn to discover her Aunt is a shell of the carefree woman she remembers from her childhood, and instead finds a drudge who is firmly under the spell of her domineering husband Joss (Harris). The Inn has no guests - the rooms are locked and kept for storage - but it soon becomes clear that it’s a cover, as Joss is the leader of a smuggling ring, and Jamaica Inn the hub of his ‘free’ trade. As Mary gets drawn into the dangerous world of smuggling, she finds herself attracted to Jem Merlyn (McNulty), Joss’s roughly handsome younger brother. But he stands for everything that Mary despises and worse, she fears that he’s involved in Joss’s gang. Mary’s morals and loyalties become deeply conflicted. Who can she trust? Can she even trust herself? Seeking guidance, Mary visits the parish vicar, Francis Davey (Daniels), and his sister Hannah (Henderson). But can they help her to navigate this dangerous new world and do the right thing, or will she lose herself in everybody else’s criminality? When Mary finds herself in peril for her own life, she is tested to the core and she’s forced to find out what she’s really made of.

I want to see this show but have been put off about the sound quality, has it been improved
Can anyone tell me if the sound quality is OK on the iTunes version before I buy it??
Excellent Show but where are the subtitles!
This is an excellent production by the BBC again. But there are a few niggles even though the sound is a little better my wife and I still need subtitles for this.
As this show doesn’t come with subtitles I had to add them myself, I would like to know why iTunes do not include the subtitles when these where included when the show aired. Please as a person with diminishing hearing and my wife hard of hearing we need more shows and films with closed captions and/or subtitles.
For me adding subtitles to films and show is a pain but for other this will be beyond their tech skills.
c’mon iTunes you can do better. But thank you for this addition.
It would of been 5 stars if you had subtitles but I have knock of two for lack of support for the deaf and hard of hearing.
