"To do good small work for Middlemarch and great work for the world." This is the intention of the ambitious young Doctor Lydgate as he takes up his position at Middlemarch's new hospital. Elsewhere in the town, Dorothea Brooke, seeking a purpose to her young life, finds herself drawn to the elderly, but scholarly Edward Casaubon. Soon both find their cherished idealism tested by the demands of marriage and society... Set during the political upheavals of 19th century England, "Middlemarch" is an epic story of love, politics and frustrated passion. This BBC production of George Eliot's classic tale stars Robert Hardy, Juliet Aubrey and Rufus Sewell.
