Jamaica Inn BBC adaptation

Today in Waterstones book shop I spotted the new tie-in edition of Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier. The book features the prominent text “now a major BBC drama” across the top so you can’t miss the fact that the book has been adapted.

The official release date for he book is 27 March so I assume that the three part series will appear in April, and indeed I’ve read “Easter” as the air date.

The book features a photo of Jessica Brown Findlay on the cover. She is playing the main character Mary Yellan and TV audiences will recognise her from Downton Abbey where she played Lady Sybil.

Which neatly leads on as the perfect excuse to show a photo of Jessica in period dress.
