Les Misérables

De­cem­ber 30, BBC One

RTÉ Guide Christmas Edition 2018 - - Festive Insider -

Not a fan of mu­si­cals? No prob­lem. This ver­sion of Les Mis has its cast fo­cused more on gritty drama than break­ing into song. As a six-part pe­riod drama, we get to delve more deeply into the back­ground of the char­ac­ters of Vic­tor Hugo’s sprawl­ing 1862 novel set in a frac­tious Paris. Lead­ing the cast as re­formed crim­i­nal Jean Val­jeal, is a per­fectly cast Do­minic West, Lily Collins as naive in­genue Fan­tine and Olivia Cole­man as the ir­re­press­ible Madame Thenardier.
