In he and his newspaper tackles financial plotting, encountering a young - and very secretive - Disraeli, and the prospect of war overseas. Originally broadcast in 2008 this complete BBC Radio collection stars Jamie Glover as Dickens in Series 1 and Dan Stevens as Dickens in Series 2. Also starring Jasmine Hyde, Eleanor Howell, Andrew Buchan, John Dougall, John Rowe and Gerard Murphy.
