Oliver Twist - Part One

Season 39, Episode 5 of 14

A young orphan is branded a rebel for wanting more gruel, leading to a phantasmagoria of adventures in early 19th-century London. William Miller stars as Oliver Twist in Charles Dickens' much-loved story, with Timothy Spall (Harry Potter) as Fagin the cutpurse king, Adam Arnold as the Artful Dodger and a galaxy of other great actors creating the seedy, sentimental and colorful world that can only be called Dickensian. Part One: Having endured a miserable childhood, Oliver (William Miller) is sold to an undertaker, where his mistreatment forces him to escape to London. There, he is adopted by a criminal gang led by Fagin (Timothy Spall) and soon falls afoul of the law.
