David Copperfield is the story of a boy growing to maturity in the affairs of the world and of the heart, surrounded by some of Dickens' most memorable characters: David's eccentric great-aunt, Miss Betsey Trotwood; the ever-optimistic Mr Micawber; jolly Peggotty and her willing husband Barkis; the charming Steerforth; the ever so 'umble Uriah Heep; and the foolishly innocent Dora.
But will David finally find happiness with the faithful Agnes Wickfield, whom he has known since childhood? And is her own future secure, threatened as it is by Uriah Heep, her father's clerk?
This full-cast audio dramatisation of the Dickens classic stars Miriam Margolyes, Timothy Spall, Phil Daniels, and Sheila Hancock.

outstanding classic drama
Dickens and BBC at their Best!
For me all the characters are brought to life and are really well defined by the excellent cast.
Bleak House is another roller coaster of a book that has so many complex characters that are all the better for being dramatised. So easy get back into the book once you restart your listening.
Narrators are the key for me, not all narrators are blessed with skills to deliver a believable and entertaining experience. For example the likes of Anton Lesser is the finest exponents of the art. There are others who can make or break a story. It's an art.
