Critic Reviews for Dickensian: Season 1

Audience Reviews for Dickensian: Season 1

  • Jul 31, 2021
    It's hard to understand why the BBC's audience never materialized for this delightful series that was cancelled after only one season. Writer Tony Jordan weaves together a credible "prequel" to Great Expectations, Bleak House, Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol. While some critics frowned on lifting Dickens's already full and delightful characters to serve in Jordan's narrative, I found the flawlessly acted and directed result as delightful as any series based on the master's actual work. As to there being only one season, have no fear. Unlike other series, this show perfectly wraps up all its plot lines in the final episodes – just as in the real thing.
