FIRST LOOK Les Misérables

Further images have been released from BBC One’s upcoming adaptation of Les Misérables.

Andrew Davies’ six-part drama adaptation of Victor Hugo's 19th century classic will air in 2019 and delve deep into the many layers of Hugo's story, revelling in Jean Valjean and Javert's cat-and-mouse relationship, against the epic backdrop of France at a time of civil unrest.

With striking intensity and contemporary resonance, Hugo’s novel explores the struggles and triumphs of the underclass and the quest for a better life.

These latest images show Olivia Colman as Madame Thénardier, Adeel Akhtar as Monsieur Thénardier, Josh O'Connor and Ellie Bamber as Marius and Cosette as well as further images of Dominic West as Jean Valjean and Lily Collins as Fantine.

The six-part television adaptation of the renowned book will vividly and faithfully bring to life the vibrant and engaging characters, the spectacular and authentic imagery and, above all, the incredible yet accessible story that was Hugo’s lifework.

Les Misérables coming soon to BBC One
