The Mystery of Edwin Drood: BBC Drama

BBC News reported that Gwyneth Hughes completed Dickens's unfinished novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood, giving the work a new ending for the BBC Four drama that will be screened later this year.

Dickens died in 1870 before completing the story. He gave his biographer John Forster a brief outline of the tale. The adaptation "forms part of a season of programs on TV and radio to celebrate the printed word for the BBC's Year Of Books," BBC News wrote.

This does sound like fun. I am not much of a Dickens book fan but loved his mystery. Hope we get the adaptation here in the colonies... I know we'll hear from Janet first if we do!
