Vanity Fair: Episode 1

Vanity Fair: Episode 1

Al Murray plays his ancestor William Makepeace Thackeray in this anarchic reboot.

Thackeray's celebrated satire on sex, class and money in nineteenth century England given a new makeover in this pacey, anarchic dramatisation. Moneyless Becky Sharp leaves school with her upper class friend Amelia Sedley. But she is clever, cunning and determined to make her way in Regency society, and she'll trample on anyone who gets in her way.
