Mike Newell has directed the latest film adaptation of Great Expectations. Helena Bonham Carter stars as Miss Haversham, alongside a host of other well-known faces including Ralph Fiennes, Robbie Coltrane, Sally Hawkins and David Walliams.

It’s well acted they say and the settings and costumes are sumptuous. But they complain that it just tells the story without giving a fresh slant.
On the other hand, what the Dickens else do you want from your Christmas flick?
