The spirit of Charles Dickens continues
30 June 2019 | by canadienseSee all my reviews

Well done BBC. I was hesitant at first because I was worried about the tampering of Charles Dickens amazing work and especially over a story that combines many of his characters from other books into a murder mystery. The dialogue was as if Dickens himself wrote it and I believe he would have enjoyed it as much as I did.
