The Possessed
4 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never forgot this brilliantly acted and intriguing mini-series presented by the BBC on American television (Masterpiece Theater). Classic Russian drama at its best (topped only by "Anna Karenina.") I fell in love with Keith Bell and believe that he was in more than one episode. Nikolai Stavrogan (sp) was presented as a Byronic hero who, nevertheless, was reluctant to inspire his wannabe rebellious comrades. I remember the character of his mother, but don't remember the actress's name. She, too, was a riveting character. This series, taken from the novel, "The Devils" is a classic. I've been trying to purchase a copy of "The Possessed" for years. Now I'm an old lady and still don't have this masterpiece in my home video collection.
