Michelle Van Der Water,
Rose sings and plays the hymn "Abide With Me". The words were not written until 1847, and the tune wasn't published until 1861, in the classic "Hymns Ancient and Modern". This song did not exist at the time Oliver Twist takes place. See more »
This was an enjoyable version that held my attention despite familiarity with the material. It was more detailed than most dramatisations. Timothy Spall was very good. I had some problems with it, however:
* The music was intrusive.
* Bill Sikes was well acted, but seemed, unless my eyes deceived me, to have perfectly plucked eyebrows. After so much effort was taken with makeup (especially teeth), this was strange.
* Julian Rhind-Tutt was weak as Monks, and his hair seemed out of period.
* Edward Fox has become a mannered caricature of himself.
