When Tiny Tim met Little Nell: it’s the great Dickens TV mash-up

28 November 2015 4:03 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Tony Jordan, former chief scriptwriter on EastEnders, explains why he’s happy to risk the wrath of Dickens purists in the BBC’s 20-part Christmas showpiece

Is it Little Nell, or Tiny Tim on his crutch, or perhaps Bill Sikes with Bull’s-Eye the dog? Maybe it is Bleak House’s tenacious Inspector Bucket, or Mrs Gamp from Martin Chuzzlewit, with her furled umbrella? None would be exactly an unexpected caller in the run-up to Christmas. Charles Dickens’s highly recognisable characters have been endlessly repackaged for television audiences; but this year, for the first time, they will actually be meeting each other.

In BBC1’s key festive offering, Dickensian, Fagin, played by Anton Lesser, and Scrooge, played by Ned Dennehy, are to go head to head on the cobbled streets of a vast set, built inside an old factory in Greenford, west London.

Caroline Quentin, Peter Firth and more join BBC One's Charles Dickens drama

30 May 2015 5:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Caroline Quentin, Peter Firth and Pauline Collins have all been added to the cast of a new Charles Dickens drama.

The 20-episode series for BBC One has also cast BAFTA award winner Stephen Rea.

Dickensian brings together some of the writer's most iconic characters as their lives interweave in 19th Century London.

Characters from a range of classic tales will appear in the programme, including Scrooge, Fagin and Miss Havisham.

Rea, who plays Inspector Bucket from Bleak House, said: "Dickensian is the most beautiful re-working of the world of Dickens that you could ever imagine. The characters take on a fresh life, and any actor would be mad not to accept the challenge these great scripts offer."

Collins, who plays Martin Chuzzlewit's Mrs Gamp, added: "You don't need to know Dickens' novels to fall in love with the stories we're telling. It's going to be a real treat to watch. »

10 years of new Doctor Who: nerdy in-jokes from series 1

22 March 2015 11:51 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Autons to tribophysics via Kronkburgers, here's a pick of the best nerdy in-jokes and references from the 2005 series of Doctor Who...

Ten years ago, the world was about to be re-introduced to one of the most enduring and exciting television characters of all time, Doctor Who. The programme's new 2005 sheen brought with it a cheeky self-referential side (though it did do a bit of that in the 80s) and a knowingly raised pop culture eyebrow. From films such as E.T. to Barbarella to Star Trek to modern literature (The Lovely Bones) and icons (Michael Jackson) - everything was in the Time Lord’s gaze.

So let’s take our very own trip back in time and have a look at the more notable and interesting references and in-jokes from Doctor Who Series One, starring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper.


Most obviously, this opener saw the return of the »
