Regie: Adam Penford
Darsteller: Nicholas Farrell, Mark Gatiss
Kurzinfo: It’s a cold Christmas Eve and mean-spirited miser Ebenezer Scrooge (Nicholas Farrell) has an unexpected visit from the spirit of his former business partner Jacob Marley (Mark Gatiss). Bound in chains as punishment for a lifetime of greed, the unearthly figure explains it isn’t too late for Scrooge to change his miserly ways in order to escape the same fate, but first he’ll have to face three more eerie encounters… Mark Gatiss („Dracula”, „The League of Gentlemen”, „Doctor Who”) stars as Jacob Marley in his own retelling of Dickens’ classic winter ghost story alongside Nicholas Farrell („Chariots of Fire”, „The Crown”, „The Iron Lady” and „37 Days”) as Scrooge. Filled with Dickensian, spine-tingling special effects, prepare to be frightened and delighted in equal measure as you enter the supernatural Victorian world of „A Christmas Carol“. (plb)
