Sugar and Spice: the dark side of Victorian London
Debauchery and deception in Victorian London forms the background to a new mini-series based on the bestselling book The Crimson Petal and the White.
The forthcoming big-name four-hour mini-series features Romola Garai, Gillian Anderson, Richard E Grant and Chris O'Dowd. Directed by Marc Munden, and adapted from Michel Faber's book of the same name, it charts the relationship between Sugar (Garai), a superior prostitute, and William Rackham (O'Dowd), a perfume magnate.
