Ooh, now you've made me want to watch this, if only to have a six-hour giggle at it.
I can't say how well I will like Derek Jacobi as Arthur Clennam, as I'm not terribly fond of him, but I'm excited to see Alec Guinness, Eleanor Bron, and Miriam Margoyles.

Very accurate review; when I saw it, I hadn't read the book, and had to go read the full summary online to understand the bits that hadn't been fully explained. Like when Mr Merdle commits suicide . . . I had no idea who he was. Maybe I was just slow in following it, but at some points I just gave up trying to figure out the details and just chalked it up to the hilarious Dickensian-ness of the plot twists. However, there were some really great aspects. I loved Derek Jacobi. He had that middle-aged-yet-oddly-really-cute thing going on, haha.
