Overview

This gripping and emotionally powerful adaptation of Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist, from one of British television's most exciting new screenplay writers (Sarah Phelps), breathes new life into the popular tale. On a dark and stormy winter's night in a miserable, dank room, lit only by a few candles, Oliver (William Miller) is born into a life of poverty and misfortune. Growing up in a workhouse, watching the suffering and cruelty endured by the boys at the hands of his masters, Oliver decides he wants more and sets out for London. There he meets the Artful Dodger (Adam Arnold), Nancy (Sophie Okonedo), Fagin (Timothy Spall), and the boys and gets the first warm welcome of his life -- unaware that this kindness requires its own type of payment to be collected by the evil Bill Sykes (Tom Hardy). A chance meeting with Mr. Brownlow (Edward Fox) and Rose (Morven Christie) sees Oliver's fortunes change. But there are those unknown to Oliver determined to ruin and destroy his life, Oliver Twist originally aired in 2007 on BBC1 in the U.K., and came to the U.S. through PBS's Masterpiece Classic series.
