Season 30, Episode 1 Oliver Twist
First Aired: October 8, 2000
This striking three-part take on Charles Dickens' beloved rags-to-riches saga "Oliver Twist."

It's something of a riches-to-rags tale about Oliver's star-crossed parents (Tim Dutton, Sophia Myles) and the mess Oliver (Sam Smith) found himself in when he entered the world. Elizabeth: Lindsay Duncan. Edward: Marc Warren.
