Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s atmospheric novel, centring on the acute social injustices as perceived by anti-hero Raskolnikov, is here brilliantly realised through Hurt’s complex and gritty lead performance. Screenwriter Jack Pulman (I, Claudius) provides another iconic role for Hurt and a deeply insightful and moving screenplay for what is one of the finest classic TV adaptations.
