This and Bleak House must surely be the "best of the best" of BBC's excellent Dickens series. So well done.

Once again, the BBC & WGBH Boston create a tremendous Masterpiece miniseries of a Dickens classic; brought to life as no others can with a repeat pairing of two enormous talents: renowned screenwriter Andrew Davies and (Downton Abbey) composer John Lunn, (both of whom were responsible for another outstanding treatment of Dickens in a prior Masterpiece miniseries: "Bleak House"). Claire Foy is so damned cute I just want to pinch her cheek. She and Matthew Macfadyen seem like genuinely sweet people. Loved the nasty characters, too: Eddie Marsan as Pancks, Andy Serkis as Rigaud, and Alun Armstrong as Flintwinch... just everyone in the cast; too many to mention. I couldn't stop watching, and I was sorry to see it end. FIVE STARS.

Quite simply outstanding. The two leads (Claire Foy and Matthew Macfadyen) are wonderful and are complemented by a superb ensemble cast. Yes it is long but boy is it worth it!

Anyone a fan a period dramas should like this piece, if only for the fact that its a 13-episode series.
