So, Andrew Davies may be the only person in the history of the world to think there wasn't quite enough melodrama in Dickens. I commend his efforts to add more overwrought melodrama to the world, but perhaps he didn't have to try it out on Little Dorrit.

McFayden does a good thrashing around in fever scene, I have to say. Excellent flailing motions.

ETA: Hmmm. I think the rewriting of how they get to the ending is a bit crap. Especially with the French Taunter (as [livejournal.com profile] caerbannog calls Rigaud) rolling around the place before being crushed by the ceiling.

I am enjoying this. Well, the bits Dickens actually wrote; I'll admit it's been some time since I read the novel but I don't remember chunks of this happening. Though the acting all round is pretty good and I am glad to see that Tom Quinn escaped from the North Sea to Victorian London. V. impressive that.

ETA: AND IN VITALLY IMPORTANT NEWS I MADE RASPBERRY ICE-CREAM AND IT WAS AMAZING.
