Dickensian: Behind the scenes of the BBC drama series

Dickensian: Behind the scenes of the BBC drama series

 

In 2013, the BBC announced it would be commissioning a new TV series that would ‘bring the world of Dickens to life in a drama populated by the vivid characters from his classic books" who will meet "in the most surprising of ways’. Written by award-winning TV writer Tony Jordan (EastEnders, Life on Mars and Hustle, amongst others) and produced by Red Planet Pictures, Dickensian launched in December 2015.

We are proudly working in partnership with Red Planet to present an exhibition focusing on the conceptual development of Dickensian and takes an exclusive  ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at the spectacular set, which is the largest of its kind ever created in the UK for a television series.

Weaving its way through the author’s own rooms, the exhibition will be an arresting combination of costumes, props, production material and parts of the set, illustrating the craft involved in creating the settings, building the atmosphere and realising the characters of Dickensian
