| John Hurt and Timothy West
John Hurt is far and away the best actor I have ever seen, anything that he was in was a recommendation in itself.

I remember enjoying the series when it aired here in Australia on ABC in 1982.

I have never forgotten the brilliance of the exchange between Porfiry Petrovich (West) and Raskolnikov (Hurt). The acting is probably the finest I have ever seen in a dual scene. Worth watching for these scenes alone.

The reviews seem to be a bit down on the series but it is interesting enough basically a great display of British acting.
