  • Classic adaptation of a well-loved book builds the reputations of its young stars

    8.5
    Evelyn Waugh's 'Brideshead Revisited' is one of the great books of the early twentieth century, and this TV version from Granada Television certainly did it justice. The story of Charles (Jeremy Irons) and Sebastian (Anthony Andrews), who meet at university and whose lives become ever more linked as the years go by, is well served by the beautiful production values of this series, great locations, and class performances from its young leads, plus veterans such as Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud. A running time this long would not exist in today's TV world, where money rather than quality is the driver, but we can be glad that this series came from the 1980s drama golden age - and that it stands up so well today.
