The story opens with the Earnshaws taking in a homeless boy, naming him Heathcliff (Solomon Glave) and making him part of their family. Heathcliff forms a deep bond with Catherine (Shannon Beer) and the pair’s relationship flits between the familial and romantic.

When Catherine heads off to the local manor house to marry Edgar Linton, Heathcliff finds himself ostracised by Cathy’s volatile older brother Hindley. Heading out into the Yorkshire mist, he returns years later (now played by James Howson) and seeks to reunite with Cathy (Skins actress Kaya Scodelario taking over the part).
