This elegant adaptation of the much-loved Sebastian Faulks novel might not have Sherlock’s bells and whistles but it oozes class and is sure to keep BBC1’s stranglehold on Sunday night viewing for the next two weeks. Eddie Redmayne and Clémence Poésy are the star-crossed lovers in a tale that switches time between the misery of the trenches of World War I and pre-war France, and there’s staunch support from Joseph Mawle and Matthew Goode. Be warned: it’s a three-hankie job.
