RADIO: Mansfield Park With David Tennant Concludes On BBC Radio 4 Extra Today



The tenth and final episode of Lin Coghlin’s adaptation of Mansfield Park airs on BBC Radio 4 Extra today. The 2003 series is being repeated to celebrate 200 years since the publication of Jane Austin's classic novel. The cast includes David Tennant, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tim Pigott-Smith and Felicity Jones. 

Mansfield Park centres on Fanny Price, one of nine children born to a family in financial difficulties who is sent to be raised by her wealthy aunt and uncle. David and Benedict play brothers Tom and Edmund, sons of Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, and cousins to Fanny. Of the two, Tom is the profligate gambler and character of ill-repute, but it is towards the gentle and kind Edmund that Fanny is drawn and with whom she forms a romantic attachment. Fanny struggles to be the social equal of her adoptive family and those in their circle, however, she is the moral centre of the story.
