BBC One’s Charles Dickens adaptation A Christmas Carol will premiere on Sunday December 22nd at 9pm and will continue to air daily until the finale on Christmas Eve (Tuesday December 24th), it has been announced.
A Christmas Carol is described as a unique and original take on the Charles Dickens’ iconic ghost story penned by Steven Knight and a haunting, hallucinatory, spine-tingling immersion into Scrooge’s dark night of the soul. “This production of A Christmas Carol will respectfully present what we believe to be a timely interpretation of a timeless story”, Knight said in a statement.
