The Shadow in the North

Airing Sunday, September 28, 2008 on PBS   Check local listings

When an elderly client loses a fortune on an investment, fearless Sally Lockhart (Billie Piper, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Mansfield Park) will stop at nothing to rectify the situation — even if it means risking everything important to her in the process. As Sally sorts out the threads of the mystery — a magician being pursued by thugs, a clairvoyant who sees a brutal murder in the woods and a rich, heartless industrialist on a mad mission — nothing fits together. But as Sally closes in on the truth, it becomes devastatingly clear that her life will be forever altered. JJ Feild (Northanger Abbey) reprises his role as Frederick Garland in this adaptation of Philip Pullman's novel.
