A 3-part biography of the great British author, filmed in an unorthodox manner: Actors playing various individuals in Dickens' life (as well as Dickens himself) are interviewed as if they are appearing in a contemporary documentary. Their words are taken from actual letters and journals of the individuals involved, and serve to illuminate the hardships and successes in Dickens' life, and the way his experiences found their way into his novels.

they put it up on the wrong film.
10 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I would just like to say, before it seems like i was telling lies it was not this film but it was "what the dickens" not dickens that i appeared in...just had to make sure i wasn't misleading anyone, i think it just got trailed onto this as it was part of the info on Ben Cross and must have got put here by mistake. I think Anything Ben Cross would have starred in would be great as he is a fantastic actor and if i ever had the chance to star in a film again i would love it to be alongside Ben Cross, maybe id get the chance to marry him for real..(in the film). I think whoever does the casting for the films Ben Cross has starred in made a great decision every time by choosing him, he does the writers of these scripts a justice, credit to all involved.
