The all time best David Copperfield
24 December 2005 | by rbohonsuikSee all my reviews

I definitely agree with the previous previewer. In my opinion, this is the absolute best David Copperfield production ever. Paul Brightwell is just great as Uriah Heep. Dora's character was played just as Charles Dickens depicted her. Davie, Aunt Betsy, Mr. Dick, Really, all of the actors' performances were wonderful.

I have enjoyed most of them since the 1935 edition with W.C. Fields as Mr. McCawber. But this mini-series is the best, hands down. I have searched all over the internet for a copy of the series, but to no avail. I too hope they release it someday for purchase. Or, if they would run it again on TV, I could tape it.
