BBC One is adapting Wilkie Collins 1859 classic novel The Woman in White for a five-part drama.

The story follows Walter Hartright, who encounters a ghostly woman dressed all in white on a moonlit road, he soon finds himself drawn into a mysterious and disturbing world.

The Victorian-set mystery includes romance, suspense, and danger as secrets come to the fore in a haunting tale of insanity and identity. The Woman in White will take viewers on a thrilling ride down the paths and corridors of English country houses and, ultimately, into the depths of the Victorian madhouse.

Executive producers David Thompson and Ed Rubin, Origin Pictures say: "We are so excited to be bringing a bold new version of Wilkie Collins' beloved Gothic classic to the screen. His gift for gripping, atmospheric storytelling is as thrilling for contemporary readers as it was for Victorians, and Fiona's unique take really brings out the intense psychological drama that has captivated so many over the years".

The Woman in White is made by Origin Pictures with BBC NI Drama.
