Unwed motherhood, alcoholism, lack of education, a hypocritical church - the themes that swirl around Tess of the D'Urbervilles just keep going around and around and coming back at us. Perhaps, that is why Masterpiece Theatre - now simply Masterpiece Classic - keeps coming back to Tess. Two versions - one by Roman Polanski in 1980 and a second with Justine Waddell in 1998 - have already wowed the critics. But a new, four-hour version arrives tonight on PBS and concludes next Sunday. This Tess is a star vehicle for the actress playing the title role, and Gemma Artertot is more than fine enough to carry trouble and travail that was a woman's lot in 19th-century England.

If "Warrior" predictably throws many of the same punches as the many boxing movies that came before it, there are just enough differences to make this movie seem both quirkier and more topical. Although it falls short of delivering a knockout punch, it is of some interest dramatically. The most obvious thing setting "Warrior" somewhat apart is that it is about mixed martial arts. Based on what we see on screen, this is a combination of boxing, wrestling, karate, gouging and grunting.

The Agency By Ally O'Brien St. Martin's Press / 320 pages / $24.95 If you have hitherto regarded literary agents as mousy types, Ally O'Brien will change your view. The Agency is a delicious mash-up of chick-lit and thriller, kind of what The Devil Wears Prada might have been if written by John Le Carre. Chief among these miscreants is our heroine, Tess Drake - smart, ambitious, impulsive and sexy, and possessed of a singularly dirty mouth and snarky attitude. She's also a bit slutty, as she will tell you. Repeatedly.

Another Thing to Fall By Laura Lippman William Morrow/HarperCollins / 326 pages / $24.95 Laura Lippman knows Charm City, inside and out. Her mysteries are as much about the complexities of Baltimore as they are about crime, who commits it and why. Another Thing to Fall, the former Sun reporter's 10th novel featuring P.I. Tess Monaghan, reveals yet another side to Charm City. And perhaps its seamiest yet. Monaghan usually takes on complicated crimes and inevitably ends up working with the Baltimore P.D., either overtly or covertly.

If only all fractious mother-daughter relationships could be resolved as easily as in Freaky Friday. Or as hilariously. Remaking a flipped-personality movie from 1976 (which starred Barbara Harris and a young Jodie Foster), the film stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan as a squabbling mother-daughter combo who, through a dose of well-intentioned magic, awake one morning inhabiting each other's bodies. The results may be predictable. The horrified daughter looks at her new mid-40s body in the mirror and shrieks, "I look like the Crypt Keeper!"

For Karen Williamson and her daughter, Tess Russell, persuading manufacturers to produce women's shoes in sizes 10, 11, 12 and up was no easy feat. Sizes larger than 9 have long been considered hard to sell. But the Baltimore-based duo knew of what they spoke. Russell wears a size 11. Many of her friends do, too. "There are so many women out there with big feet," Williamson said. "So we went to designers and said, 'If we can order enough, will you make these bigger sizes?' " And that's how Barefoot Tess, an online shoe store for women with big feet, was born.
