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.

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.

Many TV series have faded but not so Clarissa. We yearn to see it once more and yet again and again.
Please when will Clarissa be shown on TV again and when will it be available commercially? What are the reasons it hasn't been available as yet? After all these years I still can recall how good it was. I want my children now they are older to have the opportunity of appreciating it more. The story was so intriguing and the character of Lovelace a very complex and interesting person. Even though he was a rake he still had good points and cared for his workers who were loyal to him. He was a proud and vengeful man. This was his downfall and he lost everything even his life which in the end he was glad to give to make up for what he had done to Clarissa. He genuinely cared for her but sullied it. And then to learn that she could have loved him but he spoilt it for always and it was lost for ever.
