BBC to remake Black Narcissus

The BBC have announced that they are to remake the iconic Rumer Godden novel Black Narcissus.

BAFTA Award-winning writer Amanda Coe will create a new three-part adaptation for BBC1. Returning the romantic but dark love story to its original setting in the 1930s, as the western colonial order is about to explode into World War Two, the narrative follows Sister Clodagh and the nuns of St Faiths, who travel to Nepal to set up a branch of their order in the remote palace of Mopu.
