I remember watching this last year and i loved it, full of famous actors playing fantastic character roles. smile It is by far much better than all the sentimental films show on a certain TV channel in the afternoons. If you fancy what is effectively a detective story that incorporates Dickens stories then this is the one to watch. The settings and the costumes are all brilliant. Plus of course you can watch over a period of time leading up to Christmas. Give it a whirl if you like a really good BBC drama.

I will certainly look for that. A good antidote to daytime TV, now that I've finished season 3 of The Crown!

The new Robert De Nero film is the Irish man, it is very good, if you like a ganster type film. Lots of the actors from Godfather in it including Al Pacino.

Virgin working on it.
