Great Expectations Apr 1 & 8
The Mystery of Edwin Drood Apr 15
Of course, my local Buffalo NY station WNED is one of those who decides they know better than the PBS head honchos so I didn't get to see Old Curiosity Shop last week (OK, not a tragedy as that was the book I almost threw in the lake I was so mad at the ending!). Oliver Twist however is one of my favourite Dickens books and I would really like to see this one. Alas, WNED is showing Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall. I'm sure that makes some people happy but not me. I own Little Dorrit (and I ADORE it) so I will watch that for the next few Sundays on my own and then I will get to see Great Expectations with Gillian Anderson as Miss Havisham and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Thank goodness.
