BBC adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel. While out on the marshes, eleven-year-old Pip (Oscar Kennedy) encounters and, out of fear, helps escaped criminal Magwitch (Ray Winstone), an event which will shape both of their futures. When the wealthy Miss Havisham (Gillian Anderson) seeks the presence of a boy at her grand house, Pip is sent to her and becomes a playmate for her adopted daughter, Estella (Isobel Meikle-Small/Vanessa Kirby). As a young adult, Pip (Douglas Booth) learns that he will receive an inheritance from a mystery benefactor when he turns 21. Now under the guardianship of lawyer Jaggers (David Suchet), Pip moves to London where he hopes to become a gentleman worthy of Estella's love.
