Bleak House Review

This mini-series has the twin advantages of being one of Dickens’s best novels and being an extremely well made piece of drama. As proof of this it won 5 BAFTAs and received a further 7 nominations.

Anyone who likes a good period drama should watch this; similarly anyone who likes Dickens can't afford not to see it. The storyline follows the corruption of all those fighting to pr... read more

Dickens wrote a (little known) masterpiece here, and it has been extremely well adapted by the BBC.

Victorian Live-Action Series (30 tv items)

"In this star-studded adaptation of a literary classic, acclaimed writer Andrew Davies turns his talents to one of Charles Dickens' most brilliant novels — arguably the greatest-ever depiction of Victorian London. Fresh and imaginative, yet faithful to the original, this thrilling fast-paced adaptation is shot with a contemporary edge. At its heart is the story of the icily beautiful Lady Dedlock, who nurses a dark secret, and the merciless lawyer Tulkinghorn, who seeks to uncover it. The gener"
