Synopsis

In an upper-class Victorian boarding school, a loveable schoolboy suffers at the hands of a vicious bully and is inspired by a forward-thinking headmaster. Though a son of privilege in a rigidly class-conscious society, Tom Brown is a born egalitarian. What he learns at the famous Rugby School is that breeding really does determine character and scoundrels exist in every part of society. Based on the novel by Thomas Hughes.

A good Tom Brown, what you'd expect from a golden-age BBC adaptation. If you like those (I do) you'll like this. The most interesting Tom Brown these days, however, may be the 1916 silent, incidentally now an 'Orphan Work' under EU law.

Interesting enough, faithful to the book but the acting style is too theatrical for television. A further negative is the lack of polished direction and laughably unconvincing fisticuff scenes.
