Featuring Charles Dickens' best-known characters as their paths cross in Victorian London, Dickensian is a world of love, romance and intrigue with secrets lurking round every corner and a murder story at its heart. Dickensian is available on BBC DVD from the 29th February 2016.
Dickensian transports you to 19th century London where The Old Curiosity Shop sits next to The Three Cripples Inn, and Fagin's Den is hidden down a murky alley off a busy Victorian street, to a world where some of Charles Dickens most iconic characters co-exist, including Scrooge, Inspector Bucket and a young Miss Havisham.
Discover the events that lead up to Miss Havisham's wedding day, the truth behind the death of Jacob Marley and the sacrifices made by a young Lady Dedlock. You don't have to know Dickens novels to fall in love with these characters and stories that are packed with action, humour and suspense, including an all-star cast with Stephen Rea, Pauline Collins, Caroline Quentin, Omid Djalili and Peter Firth.
