Plot Summary

This Masterpiece Theatre production, set at the cusp of the Industrial Revolution, chronicles the life, loves, foibles and politics of the fictional English town of Middlemarch. Adapted from the George Eliot classic of the same name, the plot centers on the socially conscious, but naive Dorothea Brooke, whose disastrous match to the pedantic Rev. Edward Casaubon sets in motion a chain of events that will change the face of Middlemarch forever. The efforts of the dashing young physician, Tertius Lydgate, to modernize the medical practices at the new hospital causes quite a stir, both in the political power structure, headed by the evil Mr. Nicholas Bulstrode, and the heart of sweet Rosamund Vincey, the town beauty. Smaller plots interweave the action and lead to reconciliation, resignation, remuneration and resolution. Written by Teresa B. O'Donnell

Trivia Two days before filming the Rome museum scene, the production team learned that permission to film in a historic palazzo was rescinded for political reasons. The team scrambled to find an alternate location in time to keep the shoot on schedule, and found such a place in the Palazzo Doria-Pamphili. They later learned that this was the very place where George Eliot met the man on whom she based the character of Will Ladislaw--the man she eventually married. See more »

Quotes Dr. Tertius Lydgate: The reason doctors prescribe so much medicine, Mr. Mawmsey, is because it's the only way they can make their money. If they could charge for their consultation then they wouldn't have to overdose the King's legion. And that's the worst kind of treason, eh?
