It is 1832. Wolves roam England, terrorising the countryside in greater numbers than ever before.
At the Willoughby Estate, in the grip of a cruel winter, Bonnie and her orphaned cousin Sylvia are left in the care of the equally chilling governess Miss Slighcarp, whose mysterious plans place the future of Willoughby Chase at risk.
As the wolves circle ever closer, the cousins must uncover the treachery that puts their lives in danger and embark on an epic adventure which takes them from the snowy grounds of Willoughby Chase to the dark heart of London.
Joan Aiken’s classic novel, loved by generations, is brought to life in this thrilling, funny and magical adaptation. Directed by Kate Bannister and produced by the same team behind The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Haunting and The Mystery of Irma Vep.
