MASTERPIECE Classic | Little Dorrit | PBS

Duration: 01:02

Charles Dickens gives Jane Austen, mistress of the slow-burning romance, a run for her money with his smoldering, sprawling, much neglected love story, Little Dorrit. Famed screenwriter Andrew Davies brings this gripping tale of intimacy, incarceration, and the misery of debt to the small screen in a sumptuous five-part adaptation on MASTERPIECE CLASSIC, airing on Sundays, March 29 through April 26, 2009 at 9pm ET on PBS (check local listings).

Widely acclaimed during its recent UK broadcast, Little Dorrit received this glowing recommendation from Variety: "totally absorbing, a master class in period literary drama."
