Critic Reviews for Bleak House Season 1

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (3)

The casting was adventurously diverse. Gillian Anderson and Liza Tarbuck were both excellent, as a lady with no children and a woman with far too many.

In devising this tantalising adaptation, screenwriter Andrew Davies equals, even surpasses, his masterly version of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

Feb 27, 2018 | Full Review…

How could it not be splendid television? I have said before that Dickens and television were made for each other.

    Detailed enough to satisfy the film and lit comparison and also enhanced by sharp casting.
