The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall:
Collected edition of both series of the early 1990s television drama, including all 20 episodes. Clive Owen plays Stephen Crane, a young con-man out to make his fortune in Thatcher's Britain.

In the second series, after his release from prison, Crane returns to his real name of Derek Love, but finds that trouble is still following him around in the form of a protracted custody battle. His wheeler-dealing instincts are then relied upon to help out a struggling business - this time it's old rival Piers Garfield Ward (Simon Shepherd)'s country estate.
