Add to Watchlist

In 1845 at Haworth on the Yorkshire moors sisters Anne, Charlotte and Emily Bronte and their father, a retired parson with failing eye-sight, are continually troubled by their drunken, irresponsible brother Branwell, who wastes every opportunity given him to become an artist. Charlotte fears for her own sight whilst Emily seeks refuge in writing about the imaginary land of Gondor but all three are fearful for their future should their menfolk die. Charlotte is impressed by Emily's work and encourages her to write a novel, inspired by a story told her by a former employer, which will become 'Wuthering Heights' All three sisters write novels, loosely based on their own experiences using androgynous masculine pen-names which are ultimately accepted for publication. Their success allows them to identify their true gender and to save the roof over their heads but Branwell's self-indulgence leads to his early death and both Emily and Anne succumb to sickness, dying young. An end title informs of Charlotte's continued success but she too will not survive middle age with their elderly father ironically left as the last of the Bronte family.

To Walk Invisible: The Bronte Sisters Full Episode Guide

  • It is 1845 in Haworth, a remote village in rural West Yorkshire. Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë are sisters, living in their family home on the moors with their aging father Patrick and troubled brother Branwell. As Branwell's behaviour becomes more erratic, Charlotte realizes she must do something to halt the family's decline. Years ago she gave up writing: although wilful, inspired Emily and quietly steely Anne never stopped. Now Charlotte thinks they should try publishing their work together. But in an age where talented women are overlooked, they must do it in secret.
