This review contains spoilers.
To Walk Invisible is a feature-length drama set during three crucial years of the Brontë sisters’ life from 1845, when Charlotte (Finn Atkins), Emily (Chloe Pirrie), and Anne (Charlie Murphy) returned to the parsonage after various employments to reside with their father (Jonathan Pryce) and brother Branwell (Adam Nagaitis), to 1848, the year of Branwell’s death. These three years saw the sisters seeking publication for their novels by assuming male pseudonyms to seize opportunities ordinarily denied to women in the mid-nineteenth century. Alongside their path to success runs Branwell’s self-destructive alcoholism that threatened the family.

London — “Game of Thrones” actor Jonathan Pryce has been cast in the role of the Brontë sisters’ father, Patrick, in the BBC’s “To Walk Invisible,” a two-hour drama written and directed by Sally Wainwright, whose credits include BAFTA winner “Happy Valley” and triple BAFTA winner “Last Tango in Halifax.”

Casting has been announced for the new two-hour BBC drama To Walk Invisible: The Bronte Sisters about the personal lives of the Bronte family, written and directed by Sally Wainwright, creator of Happy Valley.
The Bronte sisters’ personal lives are as intriguing as their writing: three unlikely geniuses under one unlikely West Yorkshire roof. Coming from obscurity to produce some of the greatest and most enduring classics of all time, with themes that shook the nation, Charlotte, Anne and Emily remain one the greatest literary mysteries in the world.
The drama revolves around the three sisters’ increasingly difficult relationship with their brother Branwell, who in the last three years of his life – following a tragically misguided love affair – sank into alcoholism, drug addiction and appalling behaviour. Life at home with the Brontes at this time was not a comfortable place to be, and yet from this environment sprang their remarkable literary output. »
