Gemma Arterton is Tess

Tess of the d'Urbervilles will be aired on Masterpiece Classic on your local PBS stations on Sunday, January 4th & January 11th. Gemma Arterton, who played Lizzy Bennet last fall in ITV's Lost in Austen will play the very innocent, naive Tess.

Not to be outdone, here is the PBS page about Tess, where you can see a 30 sec clip.

It is such a fantastic novel and the series does it almost enough justice, though some fine detail have been left out.


It's awesome.
