It looks really good! Though I haven't yet read any of Dickens' novels (they're on my list for next year! :), I've loved all of the miniseries based on them.

This one looks grand - and as Charity said, casing Gillian was brilliant (she was marvelous in Bleak House). Great Expectations is not my favorite Dickens, but I am really excited to see what BBC does with this new adaptation - and from the looks of things, I think this will be my favorite version thus far. =)

I do love Dickens--in every form!

Charity said...

Can't wait. Gillian looks/sounds marvelous in this.

@Kristin - I love the Dickens miniseries too! :) Can't wait for this one!

@Rissi - Oh I know, I LOVED Gillian in Bleak House! And this version has been ripe for a cinematic redo -- to think we get TWO versions next year!

@Anne - Yay! :)

@Charity - I KNOW. I never got into X-Files, but since Gillian made the jump to appearing in dramas like this I have been nothing but impressed.
