Dickens of London

Show Summary

Dickens of London is a 13-part biographical miniseries chronicling the English writer Charles Dickens. Starting with his childhood as the son of an alcoholic whose dreams always seemed greater than reality, Dickens (Roy Dotrice) tells the story of his life and how it relates to his well known stories such as David Copperfield and Great Expectations while on a book tour in America. Each episode shows a different scene from Dickens life, including his first job at age 12, falling in love with his wife, Catherine Dickens (Adrienne Burgess), and his life's work as a successful writer. While the series does not touch on his relationship troubles later in life, it does go into his relationship with the Hogarth family in great detail. It also focuses on Dickens' relationship with his father, portraying their relationship as the reason for Dickens' own financial difficulties. For fans of Dickens' works, the series combines his most famous stories into the dialogue between the characters.moreless
