Overview

Acclaimed screenwriter Andrew Davies (Pride and Prejudice, Bleak House) crafts an all new Dickens adaptation starring Tom Courtenay, Matthew Macfadyen, and newcomer Claire Foy. This gripping new series brings to life Dickens's powerful story of struggle and hardship in 1820s London. When Arthur Clennam (Macfadyen) returns to England after many years abroad, his curiosity is piqued by the presence in his mother's house of a young seamstress, Amy Dorrit (Foy). His quest to discover the truth about "Little Dorrit" takes him to the Marshalsea Debtors Prison, where he discovers that the dark shadows of debt stretch far and wide in a web of desperation and deceit. Filled with humorous yet tragic characters, Little Dorrit is a stirring rags to riches story, exposing the underbelly of nineteenth century British society as only Charles Dickens can.

I purchased this item at a BN store while on a business trip in Denver back in May. I gave it as a Xmas gift to my wife and when we sat down to watch we were completely frustrated. EVERY DVD freezes and skips and it is IMPOSSIBLE to watch any movie. I have since found out that many other people had the same issue. Apparently the product either has manufacturing defects or the packaging damages the DVDs. Since I bought the item in Dever and live near Boston I contacted BN to try to arrange for a return but because it has been over 14 days they will not accept my return even though they know this product is defective. Now I have a $100.00 set of 10 DVDs that I cannot watch. My advice is...go to Amazon and purchase the movies seperately....it will be a little more expensive but at least you can watch the movies. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

I too am surprised to find that Barnes and Noble still offer this collection for sale!! I purchased two sets, one after the other and found scratches and skips on both sets!! I was able to return them to B&N and then had to buy each individual movie, because they are fabulous movies and well worth the money. It is unfortunate that customers are inconvenienced and that this product continues to be sold!! Shame on you, Barnes and Noble! I don't know what happened to make all of the DVDs inside not playable. I suspect that it's the packaging. The bottom line is, "Don't buy this collection!!"
