Overview

A distinguished cast highlights this made-for-TV adaptation of one of Charles Dickens' best-loved novels. Young David Copperfield Daniel Radcliffe is loved by his mother Clara Emilia Fox, but does not get along with his foul-tempered stepfather, Murdstone Trevor Eve. After biting Murdstone during a fight, David is forced to attend a boarding school operated by the vicious and humorless Mr. Creakle Ian McKellen. After Clara suddenly dies, David is sent to work; while his labors are tiring and poorly compensated, he finds a benefactor in the good-hearted Mr. Micawber Bob Hoskins and his wife Imelda Staunton. However, Micawber does not manage money well, and winds up in a debtors prison. Left to his devices, David sets out to find one of his few surviving relatives, his eccentric Aunt Betsy Maggie Smith. The years pass, and the grown-up David Ciaran McMenamin has struggled to build a better life for himself, with the help of Betsy's attorney, Mr. Wickfield. David also becomes friendly with Wickfield's daughter Agnes Amanda Ryan, but he finds a nemesis in the lawyer's clerk Uriah Heep Nicholas Lyndhurst. David also marries a simple woman named Nora Joanna Page, but their union brings him little happiness. David Copperfield was a co-production of the BBC and WGBH Boston. It received its American premier on the acclaimed anthology series Masterpiece Theatre.
