Gil­lian An­der­son as haunt­ingly mad Miss Hav­isham steals the show in the final in­stal­ment of this crack­ing three-part BBC adap­ta­tion of the Charles Dick­ens novel. Still bare­foot in her tat­tered wed­ding dress and alone af­ter a li­tany and life­time of lies to Pip ( Dou­glas Booth) and Estella ( Vanessa Kirby), Miss Hav­isham takes a good long look at her­self – bit­ter, ma­nip­u­la­tive and full of vengeance – be­fore one last act of to­tal mad­ness. Bleak, painful and pow­er­ful.
