The acting is excellent. The quality is amazing as usual for these BBC programs. The only thing I thought was lacking was that a few of the stories are not introduced well. I am aware that these were produced as dramas and there is different production across titles. For the money, for the over all quality and massively enjoyable 35hrs+ ...a bargain.

Chapters 1-20 contain David Copperfield and Bleak House starts at Chapter 21. However, the lack of any announcements about which book lies where or even when one ends and another begins lets down otherwise superb material. Furthermore, although the names of the cast are given in general terms in the advertising for the collection, there is no cast list for each production. It seems I shall have to live in ignorance about the actor who plays Mr Micawber so memorably. These omissions could so easily have been rectified but they mean that this production is flawed as a result.

Great audiobook, great performances that I enjoyed very much.
That being said, the lack of an index is hugely confusing. There is no way of knowing which chapter relates to which book. I've taken the liberty to outline it below:
1-20 David Copperfield
21-25 Bleak House
26-30 Hard Times
31 -34 Little Dorrit
35-39 A Tale of Two Cities
40-45 Great Expectations
46-65 Our Mutual Friend
66-70 The Mystery of Edwin Drood
