    Hi

    Please can someone remind me of the title of a - I think - TV drama that was shown over Christmas. It was set in about the 1920's and was about a Doctor who's wife had an affair so he forced her to go abroad with him to nurse cholera sufferers. He ends up dying there. All a bit depressing at Christmas but it was really good.

    Thanks

    Jackie

    I'm sure you're right about The Painted Veil but isn't Vessel of Wrath a different story? It's set in Papua New Guinea and has a drunk beachcomber and a missionary's wife though there is an epidemic at the end.

    i misread that 'the vessel of wrath' was the same story! i've only seen 'the painted veil'-haven't read the novel so no doubt you're correct!
