Storyline

In this modern-day adaptation of Charles Dickens's novel, the Nickleby family fall on hard times. Nick takes his mother and his younger sister Kat to London to ask for a loan from Ralph Nickleby, their estranged uncle. Ralph is trying to make a business deal with a notorious mobster, and isn't above using his teenage niece as a pawn in his schemes. Unaware of his uncle's sinister plans, Nick accepts a job at Dotheolds Hall, a care home owned by his uncle. It's just the beginning of Nick's adventures, when he helps seemingly senile Mrs. Smike escape from the abusive care takers... Written by L. Hamre

Just awful!
5 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't know whether the actors read the script before they agreed to do this piece of trash but it is beyond awful. The script is incredibly naff and there is not a piece of it that works. I never really like Adrian Dunbar's work but I know he is a respected actor so am incredulous that he would agree to do this. i am not truly conversant with the Dickens original work so find it difficult to see similarities between the two pieces. All I can see is that this is awkward, unconvincing and trite . The writer of this modern work needs to take a long, hard look at his reason for doing this - on the strength of a piece like this he will be lucky if he ever gets a commission to write anything else ever again. It is painfully PC and has shoehorned an ethnic storyline into it to somehow appear modern - wrong, wrong,wrong!! The BBC should be ashamed of themselves for funding this and then having the temerity to broadcast it.
