Storyline

[PART I] Braving her father Edgar Linton's warning not to cross the estate border, young Catherine discovers her charming, but sickly cousin and the manly Hareton are the heartlessly scorned and abused sons of wealthy Heatcliff on the Earnshaw estate. This launches a flashback how Heathcliff was raised as Cathy's best friend by her kind father, Mr. Earnshaw. After his death, the son and heir returns from boarding school, married, and reduces Heathcliff to the rank of stable boy, enduring constant abuse in order to remain with Cathy. After an accidental meeting with elegant gentleman Edgar Linton, she falls in love. To Hindley's delight, this drives Heathcliff away. [PART II] Three years later, Heathcliff returns wealthy enough to buy the estate, a day after Cathy married Edgar. He takes revenge, which instead of satisfaction brings misery to all. After Cathy and later Edgar's death, his scorn includes the next generation, which nevertheless finds each-other striving for nobler values. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

In Emily Brontë's novel Nelly says "But where did he come from, the little dark thing, harboured by a good man to his bane?" in reference to Heathcliff. Interestingly, actor Tom Hardy (Heathcliff) would go on to play a character from DC Comics called Bane in The Dark Knight Rises (2012). See more »

Quotes

Heathcliff: Going somewhere?
Cathy: Where would I go, my love? It's raining.
Heathcliff: Yet you have that silk frock on, my love.
Heathcliff: Someone coming here, perhaps?
Cathy: Perhaps.
Heathcliff: Edgar Linton?
Cathy: [freeing her head from Nellie's fussing hands] I said enough, Nellie... Let me alone!
Heathcliff: [slowly walking towards Cathy] Three months ago we lay together yet since then every evening is spent with the Lintons!
Cathy: Perhaps I find Edgar easier company. Perhaps he doesn't talk of curses and fall into a brooding silence.
Heathcliff: So you dislike my company?

I have yet to see an adaptation of Wuthering Heights that portrays Heathcliff as the nasty piece of work that he is. He is NOT a romantic hero, not even the Byronic type. And I have yet to see an adaptation that doesn't idiotically compress or ignore the second HALF of the novel, proving that the adapters either DON'T GET IT or are blatantly playing to commercial interests (you'd know for sure H isn't a romantic hero if you saw him abusing women and children, as he does in the second half of the novel). This particular adaptation is worse than most; among other transgressions, it includes a quite illogical sex scene (likely for commercial interests), illogical because part (and ONLY part) of the tension is about sexual frustration; if you've been making out in the heather, you're not frustrated. I always hope when it's a miniseries that at last we'll get a version that does full justice to the novel. Not this time, alas.
