BBC Series "Bleak House" Is Smash Hit

Can't wait for this to cross the ocean in DVD format.

The BBC has been broadcasting a new drama series based on the Charles Dickens classic "Bleak House".

The 1853 novel revolves around a case lost in endless litigation at the Court of Chancery in London, England. The story about a convoluted lawsuit over an inheritance is considered to be a scathing portrayal of a moribund system permeated with greed, deception, delusion and corruption. Canadians who closely follow politics should feel right at home!

The TV screenplay has been written by writer Andrew Davies, who wrote the BBC's popular adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride And Prejudice.
