Gillian Anderson, David Suchet and Ray Winstone star in Masterpiece Classics’ new adaptation of Great Expectations, widely considered one of the greatest novels by Charles Dickens. Great Expectations follows orphan boy Pip as he rises from an apprentice to a gentleman.
A terrifying encounter with an escaped convict in a graveyard on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter, decaying Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor-these form a series of events that change the orphan Pip's life forever, as he eagerly abandons his humble origins to begin a new life as a gentleman. Dickens's haunting novel depicts Pip's education and development through adversity as he discovers the true nature of his great expectations. Published nine years before Dickens's death, it remains one of his most celebrated works.
