Adaptation of the eponymous novel North and South: romance and social opposition in Victorian England by Elizabeth Gaskell
Thus, what the North and the South offer is above all a social exploration, both regional and contextual.
Besides its compelling portrayal of England and its working class at the time, the miniseries' other big draw is the impeccable performance of cast members Richard Armitage and Daniela Denby-Ash. Some of the main characters, a bit cliché since, will also drop out of the game
This is how we managed to learn more about the "hidden side" of the Industrial Revolution. North and South is a show not to be missed that will open your mind.
