Distraction: Great Expectations




I have to admit that when I sat down to watch the most recent version of Charles Dickens' classic, Great Expectations, my wandering expectations were far from those of the title....but once the opening credits started to flicker across my television screen, I knew I was in for an eerily beautiful visual treat.  No one can spin a tale like Charlie and even if I found the adult Pip distractingly handsome (wait, what did he just say?) that's a minor complaint for a program that had me utterly engrossed.  These images are from the set of Satis House.....home of Miss Havisham.....who knew decay could look so lovely?  

Read plenty more about the production here.
