Ultimate Charles Dickens Masterworks Collection
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.
