When Scrooge sees his classmates in the past he calls out "There's Toby Veck!" This is a reference to the character Toby Veck, the protagonist in the Dickens story 'The Chimes'. See more »
Marley died in 1836, and the story takes place seven Christmas Eves later in 1843. The caroler at Scrooge's door sings Good King Wenceslas, but the lyrics for that song were not written until 1853. See more »

This is the timeless Dickens story...splendidly told! The cast is uniformly excellent, even down to the smaller roles that may only offer an actor a scene or two. But it is Patrick Stewart's show ALL THE WAY! Not only does he dominate every scene he is in by his sheer presence, but his interpretation of the character of Ebenezer Scrooge lends depth and believability to the old miser and his complete transformation, where others have veered toward caricature. The music, the costumes, the sets -- all are of first quality. Highly recommended!
