The six-part British drama series Wives and Daughters was adapted from the Elizabeth Gaskell novel of the same name. Set in the mid-19th century, this was the story of Molly Gibson (Zhivila Rocke), whose tranquil existence was shattered when her widowed father remarried. Saddled with a flirtatious stepsister named Cynthia (Rosalind Lloyd), Molly tried to make the best of an uncomfortable situation -- at least until both girls fell in love with the same man. Originally telecast in 1972, Wives and Daughters was remade on a more lavish scale in 1999.
