The army prepares for the next assault on the barricades and the fighting becomes more bloody and desperate.
When Jean Valjean finds Marius, he feels conflicted about the young man who wants to take Cosette from him.
Javert is baffled and infuriated by Valjean's behaviour towards him. As Valjean's selfless actions shatter Javert's worldview, he is sent into a turmoil from which he will never recover.
Valjean makes the ultimate heartbreaking decision thinking he is doing the best for his daughter Cosette, but underestimates the depth of her love for him.
Andrew Davies' six-part drama adaptation of Victor Hugo's 19th century classic will delve deep into the many layers of Hugo's story, revelling in Jean Valjean and Javert's cat-and-mouse relationship, against the epic backdrop of France at a time of civil unrest. With striking intensity and contemporary resonance, Hugo's novel explores the struggles and triumphs of the underclass and the quest for a better life. The six part television adaptation of the renowned book will vividly and faithfully bring to life the vibrant and engaging characters, the spectacular and authentic imagery and, above all, the incredible yet accessible story that was Hugo's lifework.
