Tom Stoppard’s dramatisation for BBC TV of Parade’s End by Ford Madox Ford will bring new readers to the novel as well as giving Stoppard’s audience much that is original to his inventive version of a masterwork of modernist English literature. This is the story of Christopher Tietjens, the ‘last Tory’, his beautiful, disconcerting wife Sylvia, and the virginal young suffragette Valentine Wannop who completes this triangle of love among the English upper class before and during the Great War.
