A new 20-part drama series for BBC one, Dickensian, is likely to air near Christmas and will bring together some of literature’s most iconic characters, including Scrooge!
BBC One has today announced a new twenty part drama series, with a star studded cast that even Scrooge couldn’t turn his nose up to called Dickensian. Stars including Caroline Quentin, Tuppence Middleton, Sophie Rundle, Anton Lesser plus many more will take on some of the most iconic characters from Charles Dickens’ critically acclaimed novels and bring them to life in a way you have never seen before.
From Scrooge, Fagin and Miss Havisham, you will be able to watch as their lives intertwine in 19th century London, but with twists, turns and fast paced story lines, we simply can’t help but think “will there be a Christmas special, when will the show start and finish and who on earth will play Scrooge?!”
Speaking to Micheal Hickson, Account Director at Premier Communications and press for the BBC, told UnderTheChristmasTree that Dickensian is ‘likely to air around Christmas’ and when asked who would play the cold-hearted miser, Scrooge, he confirmed that Irish actor Ned Dennehy would take on this role!
Actual details of show dates, BBC One Christmas specials and more are yet to be confirmed but once they are we will put them on the UK’s BIGGEST christmas website first.
Will you be tuning in to watch the BBC One drama, Dickensian? and more to the point will Ned Dennehy give us a rendition of Scrooges “Thank-You very much” song?
We would love to hear your thoughts below!
