Acclaimed writer Andrew Davies turns his talents to one of Charles Dicken's most brilliant novels - arguably the greatest ever depiction of Victorian London, from its glittering heights to its very lowest depths - adapting it into a series of half-hour episodes. At the court of Chancery, the interminable suit of Jarndyce and Jarndyce becomes the centre of a web of relationships at all levels - from aristocrat Sir Leicester Dedlock, to Little Jo, the lowly crossing sweeper - and a metaphor for the decay and corruption at the heart of English society. A skillfully crafted thriller; an epic feast of characters and storylines; and a passionate indictment of the legal system, Bleak House is as searingly relevant today as it was in the mid-19th Century.
