Featuring some of the most iconic characters from Dickens in one setting, Tony Jordan's Dickensian takes you to a world where Scrooge (Ned Dennehy) meets Fagin (Anton Lesser), and a young Miss Havisham (Tuppence Middleton) might find love. With a body discovered on Christmas Eve, Inspector Bucket (Stephen Rea) will have his work cut out as he delves into the sometimes-murky lives of the people who surround him.
Packed with romance and intrigue, Dickensian delivers a rollercoaster ride of twists and turns to surprise and delight viewers to the final episode.
Critically acclaimed, Dickensian is a period drama, as we've never seen it before.
