Dickens’ Women – Miriam Margolyes

Review by Linny

This is a very entertaining 90 minutes on Dickens’ life and his female characters.  We have Mrs Gamp, Mr Bumble and Widow Corney, Miss Mowcher, Flora Finching, various timid 17-year old girls and others besides.  Margolyes is truly brilliant at bringing these characters to life.  If you love Dickens you should see this.  Only very slightly less satisfying than seeing Simon Callow do the two short stories, Dr Marigold and Mr Chops, but simply because these give you two complete narratives.
