Sanditon: When is the Jane Austen tale on TV? Who stars in it? All you need to know
Discover Austen’s final novel in this new ITV period drama, adapted by Andrew Davies.
The story follows impulsive, spirited, and unconventional heroine Charlotte Heywood and chronicles her spiky relationship with the charming but wild Sidney Parker.
When Charlotte suffers an accident, she unexpectedly finds herself transported from her rural home of Willingden to the up-and-coming seaside town of Sanditon.
She gets to know the intrigues of the coastal town and the characters whose fortunes depend on it doing well.
The story will take viewers from the West Indies to the stinking alleys of London as the hidden agendas of each character are exposed and Charlotte eventually finds love.
Who is in the cast?
Starring as Charlotte is Rose Williams (Curfew, Changeland), with Theo James (Divergent, Downton Abbey) as her love interest Sidney Parker.
Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax) also stars as Lady Denham, with Kris Marshall (Death in Paradise) as Tom Parker.
Where was Sanditon filmed?
The fictional seaside town has been set in and around Bristol.
Viewers will see plenty of sweeping shots of the beaches and coast, with indoor scenes filmed at The Bottle Yard Studios.
Sanditon will air on ITV later in 2019.
