1. David Copperfield - Episode 1 David's happy childhood days in the village of Blunderstone with his mother, Clara (Emilia Fox), and at Great Yarmouth with their servant, Peggotty (Pauline Quirke) and her family, are brought to an end by the marriage of Clara to high-minded but brutal Edward Murdstone (Trevor Eve). He and his sister, Jane (Zo? Wanamaker), move into the peaceful little house and begin a repressive regime.
2. David Copperfield - Episode 2 Romance is in the air as David secretly gets engaged to his employer's daughter, the beautiful but dizzy Dora Spenlow (Joanna Page) - despite Mr Spenlow's (James Grout) outrage. Spenlow's death soon after, however, gives David a chance to marry Dora, and he starts to write his stories and columns for newspapers. But what of the beautiful Agnes Wickfield (Amanda Ryan), his one constant friend?
3. David Copperfield - Episode 3 David is now working in London as a clerk at Spenlow's and living at Mrs Crupp's (Dawn French) house. However, her fondness for "peppermint cordial" renders her incapable of fulfilling her promise to Aunt Betsey (Maggie Smith) to treat David as if he were her own son.
4. David Copperfield - Episode 4 A chance meeting with his old schoolfriend, James Steerforth (Oliver Milburn), leads to David being invited to dinner with Steerforth's mother (Cherie Lunghi). David also discovers from Agnes that her father's clerk, the lurking and evil Uriah Heep (Nicholas Lyndhurst), is to become a partner in her father's business - and the stage is set for a bitter battle.
