An unusual love story told in three episodes, Tipping the Velvet charts the course of Nan, an ingénue who discovers a sexually charged world of male impersonators, actors and affluent women looking for female companionship in the usually controlled and corseted 1890s. Ultimately, however, Nan learns that she can only truly depend on herself. Stars Keeley Hawes, Rachel Stirling, John Bowe, Jodhi May, Anna Chancellor and Hugh Bonneville.

Audience Reviews for Tipping the Velvet

  • Jan 20, 2009
    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. <i>Tipping the Velvet</i> is to lesbian romance what <i>Lonesome Dove</i> is to the western genre. A solid but somewhat less than spectacular effort.

    Two lovers, lesbians who are in love, who are not allowed to love the same sex in those days .This adaptation of Sarah Waters popular novel follows Nan Astley (Rachael Stirling) as she blossoms into womanhood and explores her sexuality, ostensibly forbidden in Victorian society.

    Silly but watchable.

    A good adaptation, but I felt that the inculsion of peril from which Nan had to be resuced by Diana rather unnecessary.
