Apple Tree Yard DVD

Adapted for the BBC by BAFTA-winning screenwriter Amanda Coe, the series stars Emily Watson and Ben Chaplin as the fateful couple whose brief encounter dramatically spirals out of control. Esteemed scientist Yvonne Carmichael (Watson) crosses paths with the enigmatic Mark or “X” (Chaplin) in the midst of a dysfunctional marriage. What begins as a casual frisson soon develops into a relationship that will change their lives forever. This compelling miniseries is set across four episodes, which spans from a furtive affair to a vengeful murder plot and courtroom drama.

Apple Tree Yard book

Based on the novel written by Louise Doughty, the thee-part story resonates with twists and a tonality of classic Film Noir, blended with the drama of contemporary Nordic Noir. Get to know the original characters in the book that sparked the acclaimed BBC series.
