“this terrific dramatisation…”


“‘Maggie’s tragic story is vividly re-enacted in this Woman’s Hour Drama co-starring Tom Goodman-Hill as Maggie’s brother and Deborah Findlay as the author, George Eliot.”

Observer Guide Choice

“Maggie Tulliver rides again…”

Independent on Sunday

“The dramatist, Judith Adams, clearly not intimidated by Eliot’s doorstop-sized novel, brings out the author’s energy and wit without excising the book’s more leisurely pastoral descriptions”

Sunday Telegraph

“Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour drama this week is The Mill On The Floss, that classic story of a free-spirited lass battling against the strictures of Victorian society. Marvellous Maggie Tulliver is a passionate heroine for any time of the day, but a particular treat at 10.45 every weekday morning.”
