Based on the best-selling novel by Sarah Waters, the three-part miniseries Tipping the Velvet was first aired on the BBC in 2002. All three parts have been released on a single disc from Acorn Media presented with a widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital Stereo Sound. Optional English subtitles are available. This DVD includes an interview with Waters and screenwriter Andrew Davies. Other special features include a photo gallery and filmographies for cast members Rachael Stirling, Keeley Hawes, Anna Chancellor, Jodhi May, Hugh Bonneville, John Bowe, and Alexei Sayle. Highly recommended for fans of historical romance between women, especially during the Victorian era.
