Distinguished Member
The BBC to commission a new adaptation of the classic Wilkie Collins 1859 novel, The Woman in White, having previously done so in 1997, which then starred Andrew Lincoln and Tara FitzGerald.

“When Walter Hartright encounters a ghostly woman dressed all in white on a moonlit road, he soon finds himself drawn into a mysterious and disturbing world. Romance, suspense, and danger combine as secrets come to the fore in Wilkie Collins’s haunting tale of insanity and identity – viewed by many as the first detective novel, The Woman in White will take viewers on a thrilling ride down the paths and corridors of English country houses and, ultimately, into the depths of the Victorian madhouse.”

Executive producers David Thompson and Ed Rubin:
“We are so excited to be bringing a bold new version of Wilkie Collins’ beloved Gothic classic to the screen. His gift for gripping, atmospheric storytelling is as thrilling for contemporary readers as it was for Victorians, and Fiona’s unique take really brings out the intense psychological drama that has captivated so many over the years.”

The new four-part adaptation will be made by Origin Pictures (Cider with Rosie, Jamaica Inn) with BBC NI Drama.
