How I wish this was available now!
23 October 2006 | by Wot_larksSee all my reviews

I thought this version was much superior to the 1998 version. Enough time was taken so that minor characters like Fascination Fledgby, Jenny Wren, Charlie Hexam, Mrs. R.W., and Mr. Twemlow could be fully realized. In the shorter, later version even the main characters get short shrift sometimes. In this one Mr. Boffin's descent into miserliness is given plenty of screen time, as is his relationship with Silas Wegg (Alfie Bass having a very good time in the role). The acting is wonderful by all the cast, but I must give top marks to the incomparable Leo McKern as Mr. Boffin. A young Jane Seymour is perfectly cast as Bella Wilfer, and has good chemistry with John McEnerny as a compelling John Rokesmith. Lesley Dunlop brings both strength and sensitivity to the role of Lizzie Hexam. Warren Clarke is chilling as the obsessed Bradley Headstone, and Nicholas Jones catches all of Eugene's conflicted soul. Like another reviewer, I am lobbying the BBC to bring this out on DVD.
