Brilliant, but tragically underbaked
30 December 2019 | by cruzarts-73946See all my reviews

I'm not a Dickens purist and appreciated many of the storytelling choices -- particularly the stunning, period-proper stretches which place the poor and vulnerable under the heel of the powerful and callus.

Where this fell down for me is at the end. It seems as if an excessive amount of time was spent at in the first two episodes of characters looking around and pacing, then the end is shoe-horned in and feels woefully incomplete.

Ebenezer's relationship with his sister is stronger in this version than any other, but he doesn't reconcile with his nephew. It seems incomplete and rushed at the end.
