Charles Dickens' The Mystery Of Edwin Drood BBC Adaptation makes DVD debut on 6 November 2017

Charles Dickens' The Mystery Of Edwin Drood is as enigmatic in real life as it is in fiction; the author's death before its completion makes this early and fine example of a murder mystery even more of a whodunit? And the 2012 BBC television adaptation, featuring an all-star cast, is as gothic as Dickens gets. Now it is set to get its first ever DVD release courtesy of Second Sight.

Featuring a stellar cast including Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Freddie Fox (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and Tamzin Merchant (Jane Eyre), Dickens' darkest novel is chillingly adapted for the screen by Gwyneth Hughes. It originally aired on BBC Two and now it is set for its DVD release on 6 November 2017.

Fuelled by hatred and opium addiction, choirmaster John Jasper has visions of strangling his debauched nephew Edwin Drood and being with the object of his desire and obsession, Drood's beautiful fiance Rosa Bud. As events unfold Jasper's sanity is pushed to the limit and when Drood disappears all may not be what it seems in this highly atmospheric gothic mystery.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a captivating, dark slice of Dickensian drama.

'A Dickensian delight'

Michelle Keegan Returns For Duty in Our Girl: The Nepal Tour and Our Girl: The Complete Collection

TV star Michelle Keegan reports back for duty as Corporal Georgie Lane as hit BBC drama Our Girl returns for the first in a series of three tours of duty. Following its run on BBC One, the series is set to arrive on DVD as Our Girl: The Nepal Tour alongside Our Girl The Complete Collection (Featuring Series One, Two and The Nepal Tour), courtesy of Acorn Media International.

One of the most successful primetime dramas on BBC One, this powerful series charts the gripping highs and lows of eponymous heroine Georgie Lane played by Coronation Street favourite Michelle Keegan (Ordinary Lies). A Stockport-born medic in the British Army, she is a hugely popular and respected member of the close-knit Two Section who undertake missions, both combat and humanitarian all over the world.

In this enthralling four-part tour of duty, Georgie has been flown out to Nepal to provide humanitarian support following a massive earthquake. Under the watchful eye of Captain James played by Ben Aldridge (Fleabag), she is tasked with coordinating medical facilities while mentoring Maisie (Shalom Brune-Franklin - Doctor, Doctor), a reckless young recruit, and liaising with Milan (Rudi Dharmalingam - Rellik), a local engineer. The aftershocks of the earthquake are nothing compared to the tremors she feels when she runs into Elvis (Luke Pasqualino - The Musketeers), or the unexpected feelings she soon develops for Milan.

'A must watch series'
