GREAT EX­PEC­TA­TIONS

Drama 7.30pm, ABC1

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - TV Listings - – RS

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.
