DO NOT watch this unless you have read the book/seen the other adaptation(s) — it reveals far too much of the plot.

Hmm, interesting. I’m always up for more Dickens and more costume dramas. I’m not sure I like how young Pip and Estella look. I enjoy Ralph Fiennes in everything, so I’m eager to see him in this part. Helena is going to have to work hard to outdo Gillian Anderson’s performance for me, since I thought Gillian was perfection. I do like the look of Holliday Grainger as the older Estella (I was underwhelmed by her in The Borgias, it’s nice to see she can hold her own here in a much more challenging part). Anyway, something to look forward to this autumn.
