Lorna Doone Film Poster


All five episodes of the TV series, adapted from R.D. Blackmore's classic novel, originally broadcast by the BBC in 1976. John Ridd (John Somerville) is a young West Country yeoman whose father has been murdered by the local Doone clan - an aristocratic family whose evil streak is perhaps best embodied by the 'hot and savage' Carver Doone (John Turner). When John falls for young Lorna Doone (Emily Richard), his search for revenge becomes tempered by her love for him, and she begins to heal the scars inflicted by the other members of her family.
