Tom Courtenay, Matthew Macfadyen, Bill Paterson, Maxine Peake, and Judi Parfitt star in Andrew Davies's brand-new adaptation of Charles Dickens's novel, Little Dorrit. 'Cause the Beeb don't commission nearly enough Dickensian dramas. The story begins as Arthur Clennam makes his way home to London after spending 15 years in China. In quarantine, in Marseilles, he meets Pet Meagles and her parents, also returning to England, and strikes up a friendship with hope of romance. But Arthur isn't the only one of the party hoping for a fresh start. Pet's companion, Tattycoram, is increasingly unhappy with her lot and, when she meets the mysterious Miss Wade, she sees the chance to escape. Join the very lovely Stephen Fry, at 9.00pm, for his continuing foray across America.
