Description

From Masterpiece on PBS. This chilling adaptation of Charles Dickens’ unfinished final novel spins a dark, disturbing tale of obsession, addiction, and the darkness that lurks in men. John Jasper is haunted and restless. Unhappily settled as choirmaster in the provincial cathedral town of Cloisterham, Japser finds himself striving for the divine in his music even as he struggles against madness brought on by ennui and opiates. Aware of his unraveling, Japer believes his salvation may be found in the arms of Rosa, his prized pupil. His only obstacle is her fiancé, Edwin Drood—Jasper’s nephew. Matthew Rhys is outstanding as the fractured John Jasper; Rory Kinnear shines as Jasper’s concerned fried, the Reverend Septimus Crisparkle; and Freddie Fox is pitch-perfect as Jasper’s beloved, reviled nephew.

Customer Reviews

Splendid

Whether you are looking for romance, mystery, or a psychological thriller, this story has it all. The acting is excellent, but the detail--such as the beautiful use of lighting and attention to historical detail--finish the piece and bring it to life. Highly recommended.

EXCELLENT

I love anything Matthew Rhys is in. He is an EXCELLENT ACTOR....

The ending

Costumes are awesome, as is the acting. However, part 1 is very, very slow and it doesn't get better until half way into part 2. Interestingly enough this is about the same time Dickens dies. The ending as it is here is all thanks to Gwyneth Hughes.
