The works of Victorian era English novelist George Eliot (a.k.a. Mary Anne Evans) come to life in this latest collection in the BBC's BBC Classics line. Characteristically powerful casts -- including turns from Sir Ben Kingsley, Hugh Dancy, Judy Cornwell, Patsy Kensit, and many others -- help distinguish five Eliot adaptations produced by and aired on the BBC. This 5-disc set includes: The Mill on the Floss (1978) with Christopher Blake and Judy Cornwell; Kingley taking the lead role in Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe (1985); Adam Bede (1991), pairing Iain Glenn and Kensit; Middlemarch (1994), offering Rufus Sewell as Will Ladislaw; and the Beeb's most recent Eliot production, Daniel Deronda (2002), starring Dancy. The bonus materials include two featurettes: "George Eliot: A Scandalous Life"; and "Middlemarch: A Reader's Guide."
