Overview

Based on Paul Scott's The Raj Quartet, Jewel in the Crown was an Emmy-winning 14-part presentation of PBS' Masterpiece Theatre. The story is set during the last two decades of British rule in India. The plot is set in motion by the disappearance of British woman Daphne Manners (Susan Woolridge); educated Indian Hari Kumar is implicated and eventually imprisoned. Carrying the throughline of the story is investigating police superintendent Ronald Merrick (Tim Piggott-Smith), whose own life experiences touch the lives of the several families -- British and Indian -- involved in this multigenerational tale of class and color consciousness. Originally presented during Masterpiece Theatre's 1984-85 season, Jewel in the Crown was successfully repeated in the summer of 1987.

    Fascinating story

    As a fan of India and the whole occupation era this story really catches my interest. I found the picture quality to be only fair to poor but the story shines through.

    There are quite a few characters and they all make for an exciting cast.

    Be aware of poor quality

    I had expected the 25th anniversary re-issue to be remastered but this DVD set is merely repackaged and has the same poor visual quality as the original which I already own. I was unable to return it to my local store because I had opened it. I was very disappointed as the series is fabulous. Lindanotes.
