Audience Reviews for Little Dorrit


Pretty good series..... Why must Matthew Macfadyen always plays such perfect/dreamy men? It's not fair!

No critics reviewed this which is crazy. Embarrassing to watch it back to back on the same day - not a bit. Completely brilliant in so many ways. My MacFadyen obsession is well know so I won't dwell. Russell Tovey fans need to see this.
