Clarissa Harlowe is a young 18th-century Englishwoman. Her family have aspirations to move into the aristocracy and want her to marry the repellent Mr Soames as part of their plan. Clarissa manages to escape from them with the help of the handsome Lovelace, whose intentions towards her prove to be less than entirely honourable. Written by
Peter Brynmor Roberts
With a budget of over £3 million, filming on Clarissa began 29 Apr 1991 and continued for 16 weeks until 19 July 1991. Locations included several large country houses (one in the north of England, another near Stratford, and a third in Hampstead). Some exteriors were shot outside The Inns of Court in London but much of the filming was done at London's Ealing Studios, where a three-storey Georgian house was specially constructed for the series.

I LOVED IT. Best series I've seen, story, acting, costumes etc
I saw "Clarissa" twice when it was shown on TV. I was so impressed that I got the book from the library and read it. It is huge. The series kept to the book very well. The way and place and by who of Lovelace's death was different. But he died with those repentive words "Let this expiate". The death seen of Clarissa in the jail cell and her wonderful letter of forgiveness to Lovelace is unforgettable. He could have had it all and trappled her purity underfoot and lost everything. My self and children have been fans of Sean Bean since and seen most of his films. I loved the music of the series. The characters were perfectly cast, everything about it was what made this still to my way of thinking the best series in the last ten years. SO PLEASE WHY CAN WE NOT BUY THE VIDEO? WILL IT BECOME AVAILABLE LATER? AND WILL YOU PLEASE SHOW IT ON TV AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN?
