Get An Early Look at a Scene from Tonight’s Great Expectations!

The newest adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations premieres tonight at 9pm on Masterpiece Classic! Starring Gillian Anderson, Douglas Booth, David Suchet, Ray Winstone and Vanessa Kirby, it’s a haunting reimagining of a story that many of us know by heart. (And it’s pretty beautiful to look at, too.)

Click through for a sneak peek at a scene from tonight’s premiere! In it, we see Pip’s first trip to Satis house and his fateful first meeting with the decidedly creepy Miss Havisham, who dresses in a bedraggled wedding gown and doesn’t bother with the inconvenience of shoes.

Fun fact: Anderson is the youngest woman to ever play Miss Havisham, so it certainly seems like this production will be taking the role in an interesting direction.

Enjoy! And watch this space for a recap of Part One!
