Roy Dotrice played several roles in the 1977 PBS Masterpiece Theater production of Dickens in London. Shown here is a photo of Dotrice as Charles Dickensís father, John Dickens.
John Dickens was convivial and improvident. He was Charles Dickensís model for Wilkins Micawber in David Copperfield. The Masterpiece Theater screenplay was written by Wolf Mankowitz, who wrote scripts for Casino Royale in 1967 and (jointly with Orson Welles), Treasure Island in 1972.
