This must be the best miniseries portrayal of any Dickens novel. Superb scenery and settings along with a magnificent cast all make for a thoroughly entertaining experience. A must see for all Dickens enthusiasts and a great place to start for the novice. RT - iphone
Tremendous adaptation of the Dickens novel the author himself considered his best work. Perfectly cast in every role its difficult to single out any one as best. Scofield of course is brilliant but perhaps the real standout is Phillip Franks as Tom Pinch, outwardly an odd looking man who possesses a soul of great compassion and kindness he gives an emotional heart to the entire enterprise. Set in beautifully realized surroundings with impressive attention to detail and directed so that the story never bogs down and focuses too long on any one plot thread this is perfect for any fan of the BBC or classic literature.
Another brilliant Charles Dickens master piece. An Uncle goes under cover as an invalid to discover the true feelings of his money hungrey family & test their loyalty.Some romanace and rogish dealings in the plot. All is not as it seems.
