Check out the first-look images of BBC One’s new 20-part drama series, Dickensian, which begins on BBC One this Autumn.

Dickensian intertwines the realm of fictional characters in Charles Dickens’ novels in half-hour episodes, including Scrooge, Fagin and Miss Havisham, as their lives intertwine in 19th century London. The Old Curiosity Shop sits next door to The Three Cripples Pub, while Fagin’s Den is hidden down a murky alley off a bustling Victorian street.
