Hmmm
Why is the picture shown from a later remake?
Mr Haversham   4:41pm Fri 2 Jan Report Abuse

I agree - awful awful awful.
Whatever Sarah Phelps does seems to end up completely lacking any sparkle....long winded and gloomy. Without Gillian Anderson and David Suchet this would have been a total disaster.

Original Version
Why are most of the comments referring to the later adaptations?

David Lean seems all the more remarkable.
The acting is more marionette than method, the script pedestrian and the direction straight from a modern soap! Awful awful awful - Bring on David Lean or read the book.

Impressive
Gillian Anderson is most talented. Not keen on Pip and Estelle though - somehow they lack charisma

great expectations
My expectations were Great but I am not disapointed. This must be the best production of it ever. Full of detail which has been glossed over before & so atmospheric

Enjoying it for what it is.
Wonder if Jd (below) has even read the novel, or ever attempted to reduce 600+ pages into a three hour screenplay.
Gel   2:47pm Thu 29 Dec Report Abuse

Rubbish
Charmless, witless and wholly un-Dickensian. Beautifully shot, superb sets and costumes - a 50p script! Yet another wasted opportunity by the BBC.
Jd   12:39am Thu 29 Dec Report Abuse

Superb
Gillian Anderson wonderful. Photography excellent.
AB   3:44pm Wed 28 Dec Report Abuse

Typo
I was watching it yesterday and noticed the programme summary listed it as "Great Adaptations". Funniest thing for a while.

An orphan falls in love with the cold-hearted adopted daughter of an eccentric old woman. A mysterious benefactor gives him the chance to rise through London's high society, but in the process he forgets his humble roots and is not prepared for the truth about the girl he loves and the stranger funding his new life. Drama, based on Charles Dickens' novel, starring John Mills, Jean Simmons, Finlay Currie and Alec Guinness
