The Mystery of Edwin Drood Competition

This competition is now closed!

The winner is Jim M (via website). Congratulations!


To celebrate the first ever DVD release of the 2012 BBC 2 television adaptation of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, London-Olios has teamed up with Second Sight to run a competition for one of our readers to win a copy.


This highly atmospheric gothic mystery, based on Charles Dickens’ last book, features an all-star cast including Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Freddie Fox (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and Tamzin Merchant (Jane Eyre) and was adapted for the screen by Gwyneth Hughes.


Fuelled by hatred and opium addiction, choirmaster John Jasper has visions of strangling his debauched nephew Edwin Drood and being with the object of his desire and obsession, Drood’s beautiful fiancé Rosa Bud. As events unfold Jasper’s sanity is pushed to the limit and when Drood disappears all may not be what it seems.
