Dear All,

        Here's a double piece of Dickens news from Graham Smith
([log in to unmask]):   (pjm)
The following item appeared in Medway Today, the local newspaper for the
Medway Towns in Kent, U.K. on 01.11.00.

The famed Georgian buildings of Edinburgh have been transformed into part of
Dickensian London for a new drama series starring David Jason.
The four - part series, "Micawber",  features Jason playing a character
from Charles Dickens' novel "David Copperfield." A spokesman said:
"We have recreated Dickens' London in Edinburgh for the filming of many key
sequences of the series. This is due to the city containing some of the
best preserved Georgian buildings in Britain."

"Micawber" was written by John Sullivan, best known for his long - running
partnership with Jason in "Only Fools and Horses".
