Claire Foy as Amy "Little" Dorrit
Watching the PBS Masterpiece Classic version of Charles Dicken's Little Dorrit. Originally broadcast in England in 14 segments, we Yanks get to see it combined into five episodes. This makes me so happy because even after 1 1/2 hours of each episode I'm dying to see more. I have no idea how I would have lasted watching it a measly half hour at a time!
If you have not read the book (like me) I suggest you check this page at the PBS Masterpiece site to keep track of the multitude of characters.
Matthew Macfadyen as Arthur Clennam
If you wish to read the book online, here are two great sites, one is actually searchable so you can jump whereever in the book you wish, the other is just more appealing visually.
- The searchable version here at dickens-literature.com
- The easy to read HTML version here from the library of The University of Adelaide in Australia.
