TV Mini-Series | Unrated | | Drama
A gentle orphan discovers life and love in an indifferent adult world.
John Sullivan, the writer of Only Fools and Horses.... (1981), was originally slated to write this adaptation, with David Jason cast as Mr. Micawber, effectively re-uniting him with his Only Fools and Horses.... (1981) co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst as Uriah Heep. However, Sullivan left the production when the BBC moved it from the comedy department to make it into a full-blown period drama instead (even though it still boasts numerous stars of BBC comedy in various roles). The role of Mr. Micawber eventually went to Bob Hoskins. Sullivan then wrote his own mini-series for ITV1 in 2001 based on this character called "Micawber", where Jason then took on the title role.
