Nicely Set Up
14 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

One thing that Dickens usually gave us. There were always innocent victims because he was commenting on the evils of 19th Century society, especially the upper crust. Once again, we see the selfishness and idiocy of Richard. Back to chancery with someone else's money--this time the myopic Ada. We are given a look at poor Jo and his awful situation. But mostly, with four episodes left, there are several ducks set up. They involve Mr. Tulkinghorn and his detractors. I assume that we will be looking at all of them now as they deal with the final scene of this episode.
