Adapted from Jessie Burton’s novel, the 2017 BBC drama set in Amsterdam tells the story of Nella (Anya Taylor-Joy), a young woman who moves in with her mysterious new husband (Alex Hassell).
He gives her a wedding present of a doll’s house designed to look like their home and she employs a miniaturist to add furnishings to it.
The miniaturist begins sending lifelike dolls and furnishings and is able to predict the future. In the book, Nella never meets the miniaturist but in the TV adaptation, she confronts her nemesis.
The ending had mixed reviews, with some viewers complaining they found the story confusing.
