Wives and Daughters
BBC adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's unfinished novel.
The decision of long-time widower Mr Gibson (Bill Paterson) to remarry has several repercussions for his daughter, Molly (Justine Waddell), who resents the arrival of her stepmother (Francesca Annis).
However, Molly also acquires a stepsister, Cynthia (Keeley Hawes), with whom she soon forms a close bond.
Their relationship is later put to the test, however, when they both set their sights on the same man.
