Lorna Doone is a 1990 British drama television film directed by Andrew Grieve and starring Polly Walker, Sean Bean and Clive Owen. It is based on the novel Lorna Doone by R.D. Blackmore set in the West Country during Monmouth's Rebellion. It was made by Thames Television and aired on ITV.
Location filming took place near Glasgow in Scotland rather than the West Country, as producer Alan Horrox explained in The Spectator, "(the novel Lorna Doone) demands sweeping moorland vistas, plunging waterfalls, and a secret valley, as well as much else besides. When we researched the available locations on Exmoor, we discovered that much of the area has changed profoundly since the 17th century setting of the original novel...I believe it could never successfully evoke the full-blooded dramatic sweep of this classic novel."  
West country yeoman John Ridd (Clive Owen) vows to avenge the death of his father by destroying the land-grabbing Doone family. Then he meets, and immediately falls in love with, the beautiful and innocent Lorna Doone (Polly Walker).
