Masterpiece Episode: "The Mystery of Edwin Drood"

Season 42, Episode 10
Episode Synopsis: An adaptation of Charles Dickens' "The Mystery of Edwin Drood," about an opium-addled choirmaster who believes his nephew stands between him and the woman he fancies. When the nephew goes missing, the question becomes whether the choirmaster acted on his vivid fantasies of murdering his perceived rival or if someone else did the deed. Writer Gwyneth Hughes ("Miss Austen Regrets") finished the famously unfinished tale based on clues left by Dickens.

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.'
