"Thank goodness for Charles Dickens’s England. This combination of documentary and literary travelogue has no pretensions at all, merely a mad, endearing, Dickensian innocence."
"Engaging documentary… cracking pace…. Derek Jacobi does an expert job in relating how Dickens stories exposed the iniquities and injustices of Victorian England."
David Parkinson, Radio Times
"Decidedly charming documentary….Derek Jacobi makes an eager and estimable companion."
