Charles Dickens’ The Mystery Of Edwin Drood is as enigmatic in real life as it is in fiction; the author’s death before its completion makes this early and fine example of a murder mystery even more of a whodunit? And the 2012 BBC television adaptation, featuring an all-star cast, is as gothic as Dickens gets. Now it is set to get its first ever DVD release courtesy of Second Sight.
