The final episode needed to pack a lot in given how slowly the first two episodes moved.
Yet it still felt slow despite two spirits trying to appeal to Scrooge's better nature.
I also wondered how the exuberant and the overly saccharine finale from the Dickens story would be dealt with in this production. Well at least writer Steven Knight toned down the sentimentality.
I knew this version of A Christmas Carol would be a darker and grimmer take on the story. I did not mind that. It takes potshots at global capitalism and asset strippers. It was a story that should had been told in two hours.
