A fresh adaptation of English literature's first great detective novel. When Franklin Blake returns to England, he is forced to face the ghosts he fled a year ago when the Moonstone, a priceless Indian diamond, was stolen. Rachel Verinder, Franklin's beautiful young cousin, inherited the stone from her uncle on her 18th birthday. It was always said that the stone carried a curse, and the morning after her birthday party, it was missing. In the aftermath of the theft, Rachel cut off all ties with Franklin - the man she had loved. A year later and Franklin is determined to heal the rift between them. But Rachel has one condition - she won't see him until he can tell her exactly what happened to the diamond that night. Only then can Franklin win back the love of his life.

Did You Know?


The original novel, The Moonstone, is made up of a series of letters from different people with differing tones and approaches. From the very beginning the writers (Flowerday and Hails) were clear about not wanting to simply do a linear retelling of the story but to reflect the epistolary nature of the novel. See more »

Just ask for diamond
21 November 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Wilkie Collins proto-detective novel is regarded as the first detective story and has set a template which exists to this day.

BBC Daytime has taken on the multi-voice narrative by focusing on a different character for each of the five episodes hoping to encourage the younger members of the audience to seek out the book.

John Thomson plays Sergeant Cuff the detective who investigates the theft of the Moonstone diamond. Characters are interviewed in the billiard room and there is subtle use of lighting to distinguish the past and present with hues of blues used for the present day scenes where a gloomy cloud hangs with the loss of the valuable diamond.

It is low budget because BBC Daytime has less money to lavish on dramas, there are less wide shots and more close ups, it takes a while for the drama to kick in but I was intrigued by the end as the culprit is revealed.
