Publisher's Summary

Thrilling full-cast radio dramatisations of three of Charles Dickens' classic novels. Charles Dickens is one of the most renowned novelists of all time, and this second volume of the dramatised canon of his work includes the gripping historical novel Barnaby Rudge, picaresque comedy Martin Chuzzlewit and bittersweet tale of family relationships Dombey and Son.
'Barnaby Rudge': Against the background of the anti-Catholic riots of the 1780s, young Barnaby Rudge becomes entangled with the fanatical George Gordon and his campaign for 'No Popery'. But mob violence, the burning of Newgate Prison and the shadow of murder put his life in danger....
'Martin Chuzzlewit': Disinherited by his wealthy grandfather because of his love for the beautiful Mary, Martin Chuzzlewit sets sail for America to seek his fortune.
'Dombey and Son': Wealthy Paul Dombey is desperate for a male heir to continue the family business, and neglects his six-year-old daughter Florence. Then, at last, the longed-for son is born - but Dombey's hopes for him go unfulfilled....
With a star cast including Simon Cadell, Bill Nighy, Alex Jennings, Robert Glenister, Geraldine James and Pam Ferris, these BBC radio adaptations bring out all the suspense, adventure, satire and social realism of Dickens' three classic masterpieces. Duration: 19 hours approx.

Not quite as listenable as Volume 1.

Barnaby Rudge is the weak link in my view. The other two are well performed and make for enchanting listening.

Perfect Productions

If you like a good old Dickens novel then these Charles Dickens full cast productions will thrill you.

First rate acting make these a joy to listen to especially perfect for the early dark nights running up to Christmas.

Each wonky Dickens character comes to life as the sounds of the Victorian Dickens era draws you in so that you feel you are back in time living the lives the great master intended.
