The Tenant of Wildfell Hall: An Intelligent Period Drama That Will Make You Think

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a three-part miniseries made by the BBC and runs just under three hours. The series stars Tara Fitzgerald, Toby Stephens, Rupert Graves, and James Purefoy. That’s a lot of attractive leading males in one series. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is an adaptation of Anne Brontë’s second and final novel of the same name. A novel that is often considered one of the earliest feminist novels. It’s grittier, darker, more socially realistic, examining the plight of married women and domestic abuse in genteel Victorian society.
