But this has been the Dickens of a Christmas and as I sit here totting it up ...
Two David Lean epics
Dirk Bogarde in A Tale of Two Cities
Couple of episodes of the Two Cities radio serial
Great Expectations (and I think Dickens would have loved Gillian Anderson's mad, anorexic Miss Havisham)
The Mystery of Edwin Drood (which I thoroughly enjoyed as, never having read it, I hardly needed to shout at the telly at all)
And even the thoroughly irritating Sue Perkins' exposé of the Dickenses' marriage ...
I think that, in all those hours slumped on the sofa, I could probably have read one of the novels instead.
