South Riding synopsis (via PBS Masterpiece)
A lively new headmistress brings progressive ideas to a conservative girls' school in Depression-era Yorkshire, sparking conflict — and a powerful attraction — with a stern, brooding landowner rooted in a troubled past. With its pounding surf and grinding poverty, South Riding presents a hardscrabble community still crippled from World War I, and its transformation, when infused with hope, through modernization, poetry, and even love. Anna Maxwell Martin (Bleak House) stars in this three-part miniseries, adapted from Winifred Holtby's 1936 novel by celebrated screenwriter Andrew Davies (Little Dorrit, Pride and Prejudice). Also starring are David Morrissey (Sense and Sensibility) and Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey).
