Our Mutual Friend

Show Summary

Our Mutual Friend is the BBC miniseries adapted from author Charles Dickens' last finished novel before his death, a tale of two turbulent romances and a web of passion and betrayal. The story is set in 1860's London, where a web of wealth and corruption emerges after a rich misanthropic miser dies. The man leaves a will that states that his fortune all goes to his estranged son John Harmon, on the condition that he marries a woman he has never met, Miss Bella Wilfer. Before he can do so, the son goes missing. A waterman finds a body in the Thames, and a strange young man is present and disappears when they identify the body as John Harmon. Now that he is dead, the estate now goes to Mr. and Mrs. Boffin, the rich man's faithful employees. When the mysterious young man reappears with a new name, the story only gets more complex. The ensemble cast includes David Morrissey (Hilary and Jackie) and Steven Mackintosh (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels). Watch the sweeping tale of one of Dickens' best books unfold in the six hour miniseries adaptation of Our Mutual Friend.moreless
