The glittering elite of St Petersburg never looked so good. Based on the classic novel by Leo Tolstoy, this lavish BBC production boasts a stellar cast in Lily James, Paul Dano and James Norton. If you haven’t caught it yet, there’s still time to catch up on SBS On Demand before the finale next week. In tonight’s penultimate episode, as Napoleon’s army invades Russia, marching towards Moscow, Natasha (James) is frustrated to find her wedding to Prince Andrei (Norton) might be delayed even further as he returns to the army. Pierre (Dano), secretly in love with Natasha, despite his marriage to Lise, forces himself to avoid his close friend.
