Reviews

Empire Magazine

Patrick Peters

Of necessity, it’s only a whistle-stop tour and the facts and figures might tumble in a little too frantically for non-aficionados. But Derek Jacobi makes an eager and estimable companion, as he interacts with experts and landmarks with equal relish.

The Financial Times

Nigel Andrews

Unpolished and dazzlingly un-self-aware, the film could have been made at any time during the past 100 years, though an expert uninformed of its modernity would probably date it at around 1950.

The Times

Toby Young

Charles Dickens’s England is a comically inept documentary about the actual locations that inspired Dickens’s fiction. It is as if the director, Julian Richards, has never seen a documentary before.
