David Copperfield meets Oliver Twist I suppose
and much worse.
A dreadful concept surely!
A great concept; v. entertaining.
(And please stop calling me Shirley.)
Not watched any.... until now.
Turns out the wife likes it... we shall see.
I'm at my mam's. She wanted Corrie
I'll be watching on iplayer later.
Looked at a few minutes, may try on iPlayer. Watched the Agatha Christie on iplayer yesterday (good adaptation - hated how the BBC 'changed' it).
I am enjoying seeing much-loved characters having second chances. Little Nell appears to have survived. I am hoping that Miss Haversham will fare differently too.
Never really got into it as I was usually busy when it was on last week, so I don't feel qualified to comment. Of the bits I saw, I did like the scenery and costumes etc.
"Bob Cratchett - I arrest you for the murder of Jacob Marley!"
Why not add Sherlock Holmes to the mix?
Don't panic. We are only on episode 5 of 20.
Because then it would have to be called Conan-Doyleian
Coz he weren't created by Dickens.
Don't panic. He's on next!
Well Dickensian was ... dull...
is Dr Who
I wonder what the very last line will be?
*puts on Sherlock/DrWho face and gazes into future*
"God help us every one" 10/1
"It was the best of shows; it was the worst of shows" 20/1
"jelly baby?" 100/1
"you know my methods Watson" 2/1
Some mileage perhaps in redemption, but I would expect it to be counterbalanced in the other direction.....
Perhaps old Fezzywig was not so jolly after all....
With all that time, money, skill, sets, casting , ' artistry ' why not just deliver a dramatisation / adaptation of a Dicken's novel ?
A series like this, in a soap format and character driven, is likely to draw in a much wider audience than Dickens purists. (Dickens himself, of course, was all for attracting the masses to his work..)
