Magnificent
24 December 2019 | by mikegibb-60418See all my reviews

One of the best TV mini serirs ever made. I am genuinely shocked by people taking offence at this adaption of this Dickens classic. I am a huge fan of the book. I have read it every Christmas for the last twenty years and have watched and enjoyed many TV and film adaptions. I therefore approached this version with trepidation but ended up being blown away. My only complaint was that it wasn't long enough. It was a brilliant retelling of the classic take of redemption. The script, which unusually,didn't draw from the book, was sharp and engaging, the production was amazing with the mill, mine and church scenes breathtaking and the acting straight out of the top drawer. Truthfully I don't believe there has ever been a better Scrooge than Guy Pearce. If you haven't seen it please don't be put off by the negative reviews. This is a total treat.
