You pretty much know what to expect when Masterpiece visits the 19th century. But Little Dorrit stands at the high end of a very lofty list of period-piece achievement.
It's hard to imagine how this happened in the course of such an otherwise mindful endeavor. And yet "Little Dorrit" is still rewarding, for the long journey, if not for the final stop.
"Little Dorrit" is the closest TV has to a sure thing: a relatively short-term investment with a satisfyingly large payoff.
It's much more entertaining and exciting than it sounds on paper, largely due to the enthusiasm of everyone involved, especially screenwriter Andrew Davies, a model of impish exuberance, who seems finely tuned to the letter and spirit of Dickens.
With a stellar cast and a fine adaptation, Little Dorrit is absorbing and entertaining.
