This is an extremely clever adaptation of a number of Dickens' novels woven together to form an intriguing and enjoyable story. Although the scenes used a relatively limited number of set locations (the entire set was purpose-built for this series), it still managed to convey somewhat of a sense of distance from each other. Character development was very well don; a particular favorite was Stephen Rea as Detective Inspector Bucket. One thing I was disappointed with s that the three-DBVD set is advertised as twenty episodes, which led me to believe that it went ten episodes beyond the episodes that are available on Firestick. However, that is not the case: the twenty DVD episodes are merely the same ten episodes that are on Firestick, but broken up into two roughly half-hour episodes for each of the roughly one hour episodes on Firestick. So, if you think you are going to get to see anything past Amelia's non-wedding, do not bother to buy this set. If you want to enjoy watching it from time to time, it still remians a good buy.
