TREAT Par­tridge nerd­fest

BBC1, 8pm “Christ­mas won’t be Christ­mas with­out any presents.” So be­gins this lat­est adap­ta­tion of Louisa May Al­cott’s beloved novel, im­me­di­ately spark­ing a nos­tal­gic out­break of goose­bumps.

Any­one who’s ever read the book or seen a pre­vi­ous ver­sion will have sobbed their way through this clas­sic be­fore, be­cause, well you know... THAT ter­ri­ble thing hap­pens. And this lat­est adap­ta­tion doesn’t dis­ap­point, stay­ing faith­ful to the marvel­lous story about the March sis­ters (Amy, Jo, Meg and Beth) as they grow into young women, deal­ing with gen­der roles, sib­ling ri­valry, first love, loss and mar­riage.

In this sec­ond part, Marmee (Emily Wat­son) tends to her sick hus­band, while the March sis­ters fend for them­selves. And as it rat­tles to­wards to­mor­row night’s con­clu­sion, you’ll need to brace your­selves.
