Dagos_Rivers (Glen), and Bina007 (Bina) review ‘Dickensian’: A murder mystery / drama set in Victorian England, with Charles Dickens’ most popular characters interacting with each other. This show commissioned by the BBC was a big rating hit over Christmas, in the U.K. but quickly lost over half it’s audience due to a chaotic schedule. We both hope other countries like Canada, U.S.A. and India will get a chance to watch it!
The hosts discuss major plotlines which form Origin stories for major characters in Oliver Twist, Great Expectations and Bleak House.
We also discuss the following topics:
-The sex appeal of Aidan Turner (Poldark).
-Emerging costume dramas to ‘replace’ Downton Abbey.
-Other BBC Charles Dickens adaptations (e.g. Bleak House).
-Possibility of worldwide distribution, and a second series.
-Would you accept disinheritance from your parents as a ‘compliment’?
-Christmas TV schedules.
Running Time: 01:11:52
