"No matter where you go, there you are."


Watch Dominic West, David Oyelowo, Lily Collins and Olivia Colman in the trailer for the BBC’s new adaptation of Les Misérables


BBC One has announced a new adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic novel Les Misérables from multi award-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies. The six-part drama adaptation stars Dominic West as Jean Valjean, and David Oyelowo as Javert in this landmark drama adaptation. They are joined in this epic event drama by Lily Collins in the role of Fantine.

With a striking intensity and relevance to us today, Victor Hugo’s novel is testimony to the struggles of France’s underclass and how far they must go to survive. The six-part television adaptation of the renowned book will vividly and faithfully bring to life the vibrant and engaging characters, the spectacular and authentic imagery and, above all, the incredible yet accessible story that was Hugo’s lifework.

Directed by Tom Shankland, the new adaptation also stars Olivia Colman, Adeel Akhtar, Ellie Bamber, Josh O’Connor, and Erin Kellyman.
