A chance meeting with his old schoolfriend, James Steerforth, leads to David being invited to dinner with Steerforth's mother. David also discovers from Agnes that her father's clerk, the lurking and evil Uriah Heep, is to become a partner in her father's business - and the stage is set for a bitter battle.
David is now working in London as a clerk at Spenlow's and living at Mrs Crupp's (Dawn French) house. However, her fondness for "peppermint cordial" renders her incapable of fulfilling her promise to Aunt Betsey (Maggie Smith) to treat David as if he were her own son.
David is now working in London as a clerk at Spenlow's and living at Mrs Crupp's house. He marries beautiful but dizzy Dora Spenlow, and he starts to write his stories and columns for newspapers.
David's happy childhood days in the village of Blunderstone with his mother, Clara, and at Great Yarmouth with their servant, Peggotty and her family, are brought to an end by the marriage of Clara to high-minded but brutal Edward Murdstone.
