A fresh adaptation of English literature's first great detective novel. When Franklin Blake returns to England, he is forced to face the ghosts he fled a year ago when the Moonstone, a priceless Indian diamond, was stolen. Rachel Verinder, Franklin's beautiful young cousin, inherited the stone from her uncle on her 18th birthday. It was always said that the stone carried a curse, and the morning after her birthday party, it was missing. In the aftermath of the theft, Rachel cut off all ties with Franklin - the man she had loved. A year later and Franklin is determined to heal the rift between them. But Rachel has one condition - she won't see him until he can tell her exactly what happened to the diamond that night. Only then can Franklin win back the love of his life.

Very enjoyable
20 November 2019 | by jim-burke-819-361581See all my reviews

I felt when I was watching this that it really seemed of the time. I have looked at some of these productions set in the past and they've got too modern a feel. The players seem to more of today than the time it's supposed to be. I didn't find that with this one. Did Wilkie mean for the Betteridges to be of African descent and the maid to be Irish or is that an attempt to make it more inclusive? I'm Irish but I don't remember the maid being Irish. She was very good in the part. All the cast were excellent.
