I don't watch TV much either, even though I have Sky - it's just more channels with b*gger all on! I spend most of my spare time on here.

It maybe is a bit soapy...but if it encourages more people to look at Dickens then its a good thing.
Did you ever read the CS Lewis books when you were younger?

I am not a great Dickens fan but I have absolutely loved this adaptation I think the fact that the screeplay was done by Andrew Davis may have something to to with it though ..the acting and directing are fantastic..
