July 31st, 2015 by admin
Ned Dennehy is currently filming ‘Dickensian’, a brand new 20-part BBC drama series in which he takes on the role of one of literature’s most iconic characters, Scrooge.
This ‘epic’ series, written and produced by Tony Jordan, pulls a range of Dickens’ characters from different tales in to one story. Stephen Rea, who plays Inspector Bucket from ‘Bleak House‘ described it as “the most beautiful re-working of the world of Dickens that you could ever imagine.”
The show is set to run as a series of half-hour episodes, set in 19th century London and following fast-paced storylines that are sure to have us on the edge of our seats week after week.
After watching Ned in ‘Peaky Blinders‘ and ‘Banished‘ we can’t wait to see him bring the illustrious character of Scrooge to life in this fresh, innovative new series.
