Trollope on Television

Susan Hampshire, Alan Rickman, Donald Pleasence, Nigel Hawthorne, David Suchet, David Tennant, Bill Nighy, Anthony Andrews, Penelope Keith ... the list of stars who have appeared in Trollope adapations is endless.

As a lifetime devotee of Trollope, my own favorite among the great 19th-century English novelists and certainly the strongest influence over my work that I am conscious of, it is tremendously exciting and satisfying to know that my adaptation of one of his best-loved novels is coming to ITV. I could not be more delighted.
