The Woman in White

The Week (US) - - 24 Arts -

A pop­u­lar Vic­to­rian mys­tery gets a clever up­date well tai­lored for the #MeToo era. The five-part BBC se­ries, based on an 1859 novel by Wilkie Collins, fol­lows a draw­ing in­struc­tor who ex­pe­ri­ences a vi­sion of a dis­tressed woman in white be­fore ar­riv­ing at an es­tate to teach a look-alike heiress caught in the clutches of a mon­ey­grub­bing, pa­tri­archy-ex­ploit­ing baronet. Olivia Vi­nall, Jessie Buckley, Ben Hardy, Dougray Scott, and Charles Dance co-star. Sun­day, Oct. 21, at 10 p.m., PBS; check lo­cal list­ings
