A TV mini-series adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, following the life of young Copperfield as he grows up under the care of the cruel Murdstones, travels to London where he meets the gentle Macawbers and the unctuous Uriah Heep, and falls in love with and marries the pampered Dora.Written by

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.
