This gripping Victorian murder mystery, based on the novel by Julian Symons, features a stellar cast that includes Ian McNeice, Zoë Wanamaker, Patrick Malahide, Judy Parfitt and James Faulkner. Created by Inspector Morse producer Kenny McBain, adapted by celebrated novelist and scriptwriter Simon Raven and directed by the BAFTA-nominated Stuart Orme (The Sculptress), The Blackheath Poisonings is essential viewing for all fans of period drama and suspense.
The Collards and the Vandervents form an extended family in the respectable, if ostentatious, splendour of Albert Villa, on the edge of the London suburb of Blackheath. But dangerous emotions boil beneath the calm surface in a household of ill-matched adults, thrown together for the sake of the family toy business; while the arrival of a scheming stranger stretches the fragile harmony of Albert Villa to breaking point, it becomes clear that the façade is crumbling when a gruesome death threatens to reveal sordid secrets and illicit love - and the darker, hidden face of Victorian life.
