Drama 7.30pm, ABC1
While the commercial networks have rolled out drama adaptations of Sherlock Holmes, Alcatraz and popular fairytales ( Once Upon a Time), Aunty has opted for Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. But not as you have seen it before. This three-part series looks amazing. Beautiful cinematography, score and costuming.
The cast are captivating and the screenplay is gritty. Tonight, young orphan Pip ( Oscar Kennedy) is given a chance to leave behind his pauper life forever. He dares to believe he might be destined for something special, something great.
