It is a good day to be English literature nerds! Because the BBC is currently filming Dickensian, a 20-episode TV series where all of Charles Dickens’ characters essentially live together in Victorian London, including Oliver Twist, Fagin, Ebeneezer Scrooge, Miss Havisham from Great Expectations, and more.

Guys. Guys. It’s the Charles Dickens Cinematic Universe. THE DICKENS-VERSE! The show just started filming this week, so details are scarce. But I can assure you as an English major who finds Dickens’ works genuinely hilarious I will keep you 100% up-to-date with every detail on the series I encounter.
