Charles Dickens’ immortal nineteenth century novel A Christmas Carol has been adjusted over and over throughout the years – and for Christmas 2019, it will be back on our screens for a three-section show. In this “remarkable and unique interpretation of Charles Dickens’ notable phantom story,” the BBC has guaranteed us “an unpleasant, dreamlike, spine-shivering inundation into Scrooge’s dull night of the spirit.”
A Christmas Carol is the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, an older and cranky penny pincher who is visited first by the phantom of his previous colleague, Jacob Marley, and afterward by the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. They give him how his unfeeling conduct has influenced people around him.
These evening time visits totally change Scrooge’s frame of mind to life – and he is changed into a kinder, gentler man. BBC1 and American telecaster FX have banded together on this new adjustment, which originates from the pen of Taboo and Peaky Blinders author Steven Knight. Knight stated: “This generation of A Christmas Carol will deferentially display what we accept to be an auspicious understanding of an ageless story.”
A Christmas Carol is composed and official created by Steven Knight, and official delivered by Tom Hardy, Ridley Scott, Dean Baker, David W. Zucker, Kate Crowe and Mona Qureshi for the BBC. It is coordinated by Nick Murphy and delivered by Julian Stevens. A Christmas Carol is the first in a progression of new BBC adaptions of Charles Dickens’ books.
