‘The Woman in White’ preview: Watch trailer for BBC’s new Wilkie Collins adaptation

A trailer has been unveiled for the BBC’s new adaptation of The Woman in White.

Wilkie Collins’ psychological thriller novel was first published in 1859.

The official synopsis reads: “After Walter Hartright encounters a ghostly woman dressed in all white on a moonlit road, he soon finds himself drawn into a mysterious and disturbing world.”

Watch the trailer:

The cast of the five-part mini-series is led by Ben Hardy (X-Men, EastEnders) as Walter Hartright and Jessie Buckley (War and Peace, Taboo) as Marian Halcombe, alongside Olivia Vinall (Apple Tree Yard) as Laura Fairlie, Charles Dance (And Then There Were None) as Mr Fairlie and Dougray Scott (The Replacement) as Sir Percival Glyde.

The Woman in White will air at 9pm on Sunday nights from 22 April on BBC One.

The BBC teased last year: “Romance, suspense, and danger combine as secrets come to the fore in Wilkie Collins’ haunting tale of insanity and identity … The Woman in White will take viewers on a chilling ride down the shadowy paths and corridors of English country houses and ultimately into the depths of the Victorian madhouse.”
