The Crimson Petal and the White, DVD DVD



All four episodes of the Victorian drama that follows the attempts of a young prostitute to improve her social standing and escape the poverty that threatens to destroy her.

Having gained a reputation for not disappointing her clients, young, quick-witted prostitute Sugar (Romola Garai) yearns to leave her life behind and move up in society.

Her chance appears to arrive when she attracts the attention of William Rackham (Chris O'Dowd), the unwilling heir to a perfume empire, whose increasing debts and domestic trials have led him to search for other, more attractive diversions.

But as they become involved, the pair soon find themselves caught up in events outwith their control.
