Oliver Twist (mini-series) - A New Twist Comes to DVD: The BBC's 2007 Mini-Series Announced

All 5 episodes, plus a behind-the-scenes featurette, coming to the States this February

Posted by David Lambert
    This gripping tale of Charles Dickens's classic remains faithful to the spirit of the novel while delivering a modern, thrilling, tragic and occasionally comic edge. Oliver is born into poverty and misfortune - the son of an unmarried mother, who dies shortly after his birth. He is soon delivered to the workhouse, where the cruel Mr. Bumble oversees children tormented by starvation and suffering. When Oliver dares to ask for more gruel, he finds himself cast out and forced to make his own way in the world.

    Running away to London, Oliver meets the Artful Dodger and his gang, as well as the beautiful Nancy, and gets the first warm welcome of his life - but he is soon to discover that this kindness requires its own type of payment. As Oliver is drawn deeper into the dark and murky underworld, he remains unaware that the kind Mr. Brownlow is searching for him, while others - the brutal criminal Bill Sikes, the manipulative Fagin and the mysterious Mr. Monks - are vying to ruin and destroy his life.
Warner Home Video and BBC Video have announced the DVD release of the 5-part 2007 mini-series Oliver Twist, starring newcomer William Miller in the title role, and co-starring Sarah Lancashire (Coronation Street; appeared in the 4th Season premiere of Doctor Who), Rob Brydon (Little Britain), Gregor Fisher (Love Actually) and Edward Fox (A Bridge Too Far, Ghandi). The 176-minute disc will arrive on February 24th.

Besides the five episodes of the main production, there will also be a 30-minute Featurette titled "Behind the Scenes: A New Twist on Oliver Twist." Cost is $19.98 SRP for this release. It's presented in anamorphic widescreen video, with English - Stereo audio and English subtitles. Here's a picture of the package art:
