The 39 Steps - premiering tomorrow on Masterpiece!
Tomorrow Masterpiece will be airing a new adaptation of John Buchan's novel, The 39 Steps. This story was previously brought to life by master filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock in 1935. This version stars one of my favorites, Rupert Penry-Jones (*swoon*). :) Here's a bit about the story:
Richard Hannay's pre World War I listless life in London is spiraling out of control. Armed with a secret notebook, Hannay is on the run to save himself and his country. Along with feisty suffragette Victoria Sinclair, the two face betrayal and near death. Starring Rupert Penry-Jones and Lydia Leonard, this bracing and romantic thriller is based on the novel by John Buchan.
