The Mystery of Edwin Drood | PBS Video

By all appearances, respected choirmaster John Jasper (Matthew Rhys, Brothers & Sisters) should have a quiet life in the small village of Cloisterham. But the serenity is pierced by Jasper’s opium-fueled dreams and surreal fantasies. At Jasper’s despairing epicenter is his obsession with his nephew Edwin Drood’s fiancé, Rosa Bud. When the handsome and cheerful Drood arrives for a visit with Rosa Bud, Jasper’s previously hidden longings are slowly and unnervingly revealed. Simultaneously, orphan twins Neville and Helena Landless arrive from Ceylon to receive the charity of the community. But what could their connection to Cloisterham be and why would Jasper seem so shaken by their presence? And, when someone goes missing, is it all just a dark dream or are there very real sinister secrets yet buried in Cloisterham? From the Primetime Emmy Award™ winning producers of Little Dorrit, The Mystery of Edwin Drood also stars Freddie Fox, Julia McKenzie (Miss Marple) and Tamzin Merchant in a new adaptation of Charles Dickens’s unfinished tale of passion and betrayal. Watch the preview below and, for a limited time, the show is available free on PBS, embedded beneath it.
