The story of David Copperfield, whom we follow from birth to manhood, is set to charm audiences in this new adaptation. With an all-star cast and the finest production values, David Copperfield follows the young hero as his experiences bring him into contact with an extraordinary range of sinister and benevolent characters. From Pegotty, the devoted servant of David's poor mamma, to the sadistic Mr. Murdstone, unctuous Uriah Heap, and eternal optimist Mr. Micawber, these are among Dickens' most enduringly popular creations.
