Hmmm
Why is the picture shown from a later remake?

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.

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.

Rubbish
Charmless, witless and wholly un-Dickensian. Beautifully shot, superb sets and costumes - a 50p script! Yet another wasted opportunity by the BBC.

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