Be Careful What You Watch

So here I am reading Fingersmith by Sarah Waters and thinking this is one of the most brilliant books I've ever read. I am so into this book!

But as I'm reading, I have a vague feeling that I know this story, it seems somewhat familiar and the more I read the more familiar it feels. Then I start thinking it reminds me of some British dramatization I've seen, I'm having visions of maybe a classic, with a woman in a madhouse. I start thinking more and it dawns on me, maybe Fingersmith itself has been dramatized? So I google "Fingermisth BBC" and B-I-N-G-O! it has, and I've seen it! I can't remember everything that happens but I do remember the ending. Darn it all!
