This is a wonderful series, whether you are familiar with the classic Dickens stories or not, but you will certainly have more appreciation for the characters if you've read Great Expectations, Bleak House, Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol or Martin Chuzzlewit. Essentially it's the back story to each of those novels, leaving off just where Dickens takes them up.
If you've never read Dickens before, perhaps this will be your motivation to continue on into the next chapter of each character's life.
In making this series, several streets and dozens of buildings were constructed in the studio, giving control of weather, period details and freedom of movement to the cast and crew.
