Bleak House

Role Jenny
Director Justin Chadwick / Susanna White
Production Company BBC
Bleak House is one of Dickens' most celebrated achievements - generally regarded as the greatest-ever depiction of Victorian London in fiction. It is a skilfully crafted thriller and passionate indictment of the legal system - which is as searingly relevant today as it was in the mid-19th century.

The BBC One adaptation, written by multiple Bafta award-winner Andrew Davies, comprises a one-hour opening episode followed by 14 half-hour episodes.

Charlie plays Jenny, a brickmaker's wife living in the poverty of 19th Century London. In the first episode, Jenny's baby son dies in her arms.
