|Lucy Griffiths, Rupert Evans, Francesca Annis, Tim Pigott-Smith|
Not a period drama but features a lot of familiar faces...
Robin Hood's Lucy Griffiths will take on the lead role of Ruth in The Little House, a drama based on Philippa Gregory's contemporary novel with Rupert Evans (Emma, North and South) playing husband Patrick.
Francesca Annis (Wives and Daughters, Cranford, Jane Eyre) and Tim Pigott-Smith (North and South, Alice in Wonderland) will join the cast as Ruth's interfering in-laws Elizabeth and Frederick.
"The story sees Ruth struggle to cope after moving into her in-laws' road and giving birth to an unplanned baby. She finds being a mother difficult and eventually starts to believe that Elizabeth is unnaturally obsessed with her grandson." [digital spy]
