  IN THE WOMAN IN WHITE
Walter Hartright (Ben Hardy), a young drawing master, encounters a ghostly woman dressed all in white on Hampstead Heath. He offers her assistance, but is later shocked to discover she has escaped from a lunatic asylum. The next day, Walter leaves London to take up a teaching post in the village, working for Mr Frederick Fairlie (Charles Dance), where he learns of a connection between his charming pupils, Laura Fairlie (Olivia Vinall) and Marian Halcombe (Jessie Buckley), and the mysterious woman in white: she’s known to the household as Anne Catherick, a mentally handicapped child who grew up in the village. Over the next few months, Walter and Laura Fairlie fall deeply in love, however she is already promised in marriage to a baronet – Sir Percival Glyde (Dougray Scott).
When Laura receives a vicious letter attacking Sir Percival, Walter thinks Anne, who has recently returned to the village, might be responsible. He confronts her, only to uncover a chilling truth about Laura’s betrothed – that it was he who put Anne in the asylum.
