New Oliver Twist to be Darker, Edgier

EastEnders writer Sarah Phelps has drafted the screenplay for a new adaptation of the already fairly dark Dickens novel Oliver Twist. The "all star cast," reports Easier.com, includes Rob Brydon whom you'll doubt remember as the mysteriously wounded Uncle Toby in the recent film adaptation of Tristram Shandy.

  2. Seriously! I'd rather see an adaptation of Little Dorrit...
