Masterpiece Episode: "Doctor Zhivago"

Season 33, Episode 4
Episode Synopsis: “Doctor Zhivago” concludes with Yury (Hans Matheson) and Lara (Keira Knightley) consummating their longing for each other as the Soviet revolution plays out around them. Unlike Omar Sharif and Julie Christie in David Lean's 1965 adaptation of Boris Pasternak's novel, Matheson and Knightley spend plenty of time in bed together, and while the sex is filmed decorously, it's steamy nonetheless. Meanwhile, the Communists are making life dangerous for both Yury and Lara. Komarovsky: Sam Neill.
Original Air Date: Nov 9, 2003

Premise: PBS's longest running (and most honored) dramatic series is an Anglophile's delight, featuring British adaptations of literary classics and original works. The first `Masterpiece' was `The First Churchills,' and since then it has won nine Peabodys and 29 Emmys (beginning with Susan Hampshire's Best Actress award for `Churchills'). Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
