The Artful Dodger preview
One of Charles Dickens' most beloved characters has been given the streaming treatment, with The Artful Dodger giving us a glimpse on what the titular ne'er-do-well got up to when he reached adulthood.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster (best known from Love Actually and The Queen's Gambit) plays Oliver Twist's crafty Cockney in the new eight-episode original series. A few years on from where we left him – grifting on the streets of old London town – the Dodger has made it to Port Victory, Australia where he's now going by his real name Jack Dawkins and has carved out a career as a successful surgeon.
It's a fine life... until a familiar character from his past makes an unwelcome reappearance. Yep, you can't really have the Dodger without his old gang leader Fagin (deliciously played by David Thewlis). Unlike his young protégé, Fagin hasn't been able to shake off his old life of crime and now he's hellbent on reenlisting the Dodger to do more than merely pick a pocket or two.
Meanwhile, the Dodger would do anything to hide his unsavory past from love interest and Governor’s daughter Lady Belle Fox (Australian actress Maia Mitchell), while at the same time being dragged back into an underworld of crime that he thought he'd left 10,000 miles behind him.
So consider yourself ready to watch The Artful Dodger online from anywhere in the world with all the information you need in this guide.
