Unusual radio dramatization

I didn't find the accents difficult to understand and the acting is extraordinarily good for an audio book. The challenge with this dramatization is that it sounds like the soundtrack to a television version: it's often difficult to figure out where we are and who's there. It's from BBC Radio 4 but seems as though it was minimally reedited from a TV version. If you know the story already, this is a very fun experience. If you don't, you may be lost.

British speaking

This might be just right for the English, but hard to understand for an American.

I had to give up, I suspect Dickens is better raw.
