Oliver Twist (BBC)

This gripping take on Charles Dickens' classic remains faithful to the spirit of the novel whilst delivering a modern, thrilling, tragic and occasionally comic edge. Oliver is born into poverty and misfortune - the son of an unmarried mother, who dies shortly after his birth; he is soon delivered to the workhouse. There, the cruel Mr. Bumble oversees children tormented by starvation and suffering. When Oliver dares ask for more gruel, he finds himself cast out and forced to make his own way in the world... Top cast includes Timothy Spall, Adam Arnold, Tom Hardy, Sophie Okenedo, Edward Fox, Anna Massey, John Sessions and young William Miller as Oliver.
