Watch the new trailer for new BBC One drama, Jamaica Inn based on Daphne Du Maurier‘s epic graphic novel.
The three-part tale set in 1820 Cornwall, stars Jessica Brown Findlay, Matthew McNulty, Sean Harris, Ben Daniels, Joanne Whalley and Shirley Henderson.
Written by Emma Frost, the story follows the journey of young and spirited Mary (Brown Findlay) who is forced to live with her Aunt Patience (Whalley) after the death of her mother. Mary arrives at the isolated Jamaica Inn to discover her Aunt is a shell of the carefree woman she remembers from her childhood, and instead finds a drudge who is firmly under the spell of her domineering husband Joss (Harris).
The Inn has no guests – the rooms are locked and kept for storage – but it soon becomes clear that it’s a cover, as Joss is the leader of a smuggling ring, and Jamaica Inn the hub of his ‘free’ trade.
Jamaica Inn will be shown on BBC One this Easter over three consecutive nights 21 – 23rd April at 9pm.
