The BBC’s new War and Peace adaptation looks pretty good!

The BBC have just released the trailer for this winter’s adaptation of Tolstoy’s epic War and Peace. A six-part mini-series, it has been made by BBC Wales and directed by Tom Harper (of Peaky Blinders fame). With an all-star cast, including Paul Dano, Lily James, Jim Broadbent, and Gillian Anderson, it has all the ingredients to be a smash.

But can Tolstoy’s epic narrative sweep be translated to the small screen satisfactorily? The trailer suggests it can!
