The BBC’s new adaptation of Jamaica Inn will be released on DVD on 26th May.
The three-part series, which will be shown on BBC One starting Easter Monday, is set in 1821 against the backdrop of windswept Cornish Moors. The adaptation is based on Daphne du Maurier’s dark, gothic tale of desire, survival and morality and has been brought to life by Emma Frost (The White Queen).
Jamaica Inn is directed by Philippa Lowthorpe (Call The Midwife) and stars Jessica Brown Findlay, Matthew McNulty, Sean Harris, Joanne Whalley, Ben Daniels and Shirley Henderson. Jessica plays central character Mary Yellan who is forced to live with her aunt following the death of her mother.
With her aunt the shell of her former self and under the spell of her domineering husband Joss, Mary finds herself caught in a dangerous and violent web further complicated when she finds herself drawn to enigmatic Jem Meryln, the brother of her uncle.
Jamaica Inn is also available for download via iTunes for £1.29 in SD and £2.49 in HD. A series pass costs £4.99 in SD and £6.99 in HD.
