Woman In White fans go wild for ‘marvellous’ Marian’s incredible costumes

Despite the doom and gloom of the series, which is an adaptation of Wilkie Collins' 1860 novel, viewers have found joy in admiring the wardrobe of the character – played by Jessie Buckley.

Taking to Twitter during last night's episode, one user said: "Current status: Swooning over Jessie Buckley and her marvellous waistcoats in #WomaninWhite."

Another wrote: "I cannot adequately express just how much I love Marion Halcombe’s dress coat."

A Twitter user agreed, replying: "…I have serious coat envy".

A fan named Richard tweeted: "#womaninwhite Jessie Buckley is a brilliant Marian – and does anyone wear that period gear better? I doubt it. Best Nancy we never had, remember."

But not everyone agreed, with some suggesting her costumes were "out of place" for the era.

One tweeted: "marian looks like she's walked off another filming set".

The same Twitter user later added: "#womaninwhite Marian's wardrobe is so out of place in this era… It's aggravating me grrr"

Set in nineteenth-century England, the story follows young Walter, played by Ben Hardy, encounter a ghostly woman dressed in white on Hampstead Heath.

The 28-year-old offers to help her, but later discovers she has escaped from a lunatic asylum.

He leaves London the next day to take up a teaching post in Limmeridge, Cumbria, under Mr Frederick Fairlie, Charles Dance, where he learns of a connection between pupils Laura, Olivia Vinall, Marian Halcombe, Jessie Buckley, and the mysterious woman.

They tell him she is a mentally handicapped child, Anne Catherick, also Olivia Vinall, who grew up in the village, and over the months that follow the young gentleman – who falls in love with Laura, already betrothed to Percival Glyde, Dougray Scott – starts to uncover her haunting full story.

In last night’s episode, Laura married Percival but it's already going downhill fast. And as fans of the novel know, it's all going to end in tears.
