Editors Note
Note Masterpiece Theatre presents this BBC adaptation of Dickens' beloved novel about a plucky young scamp's journey from hellish public schools to a job in a London factory, and into adulthood as a mature writer amongst in mid-nineteenth century industrial London. Dickens was famous for creating a supporting cast of memorable characters, and Wilkins Micawber, Copperfield's semi manic depressive father figure (portrayed memorably by W.C. Fields in George Cukor's 1935 film), is one of Dickens's most memorable comic characters. Here, Bob Hoskins takes on the role and proves to be one of the many highlights of this delightful adaptation, which is bolstered by a number of fine supporting roles, especially Ian McKellen's turn as the nefarious Mr. Creakle.

Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Talk
Review Dickens' novels were the blockbuster best-sellers of his day, and it's easy to see why: they're crammed full of incident, with interesting plots, memorable characters, a leavening of humor and a touch of pathos. In short, as Micawber would say, they're highly entertaining.
