robomatic BS: BBC ruin A Christmas Carol (52* d) RE: BS: BBC ruin A Christmas Carol 31 Dec 19

I think the great power of the story shows Dickens' great ability to be on a par with William Shakespeare and has enlarged the meaning of Christmas for the generations since. I do not hold it against the BBC to try a varied approach. Rod Serling wrote his own version in the 1960s which (almost) scared the dickens out of me. I can watch new versions (Bill Murray) but for me the real Scrooge is Alastair Simms.
