Three episode "mini-series" produced by the BBC and set in England in the late 1800's. It follows young Nan as she comes to terms with her sexuality in restrictive Victorian society. Other than a few steamy moments it's obvious this one was destined for television. Tipping the Velvet is to lesbian romance what Lonesome Dove is to the western genre. A solid but somewhat less than spectacular effort.
A good adaptation, but I felt that the inculsion of peril from which Nan had to be resuced by Diana rather unnecessary.
