Based on the beloved spy thriller by John Buchan, and first brought to the screen in 1935 by Alfred Hitchcock, THE 39 STEPS is a timeless tale of action, intrigue, romance and suspense. This television adaptation stars Rupert Penry Jones (BURN UP, SPOOKS) as Richard Hannay, an ordinary man caught up in extraordinary events. As the First World War looms, Hannay returns from Africa to London, where he meets a man claiming to be a British spy. The man is killed in Hannay's apartment and he immediately finds himself on the run, burdened with the charge for his murder and the dangerous knowledge of his mission.

This lavish version attempts to stay faithful to the 1915 book, whilst injecting a more contemporary energy into the dramatic action sequences. The result is an edge-of-your-seat adventure with period charm and sophistication.

This version of 39 steps is nothing to do with Alfred Hitchcock so why put it in the title? It is just another remake of John Buchan's book. However good price for such a recent DVD.
