TV Old Curiosity Shop, The (ITV 2007, Derek Jacobi, Toby Jones) Published 3 months ago on November 5, 2018 Little Nell Trent (Sophie Vavassuer) lives with her doting grandfather in his London shop. Known as The Old Curiosity Shop, it is a magical place, filled from wall-to-wall with dust-laden treasures. Grandfather keeps his nocturnal gambling activities a secret, borrowing heavily from evil, profiteering loan shark Daniel Quilp. When he gambles away what little money they possess, Quilp seizes the opportunity to take possession of their beloved shop. It seems Nell and Grandfather are left with only one option – to escape. The pair fall in with a number of colourful characters while on the run from Quilp and his band of heavies, including Nell’s own brother, Freddie (Bryan Dick), and his gullible friend, Dick Swiveller. Meanwhile, Kit Nubbles – Grandfather’s servant and Nell’s adoring friend – is contacted by a mysterious gentleman looking for news of the missing two. But Quilp is not a man to tolerate competition, something they are all about to discover the hard way. production details UK | ITV1 | 1×120 minutes | 2007 Director: Brian Percival Script: Martyn Hesford Novel: Charles Dickens cast Derek Jacobi as Grandfather Toby Jones as Daniel Qulip Anna Madeley as Betsy Qulip Adam Godley as Samson Brass Gina McKee as Sally Brass Sophie Vavasseur as Nell Trent Adrian Rawlins as Jacob Bryan Dick as Freddie Trent Zoë Wanamaker as Mrs. Jarley Martin Freeman as Mr. Codlin Steve Pemberton as Mr. Short George MacKay as Kit Bradley Walsh as Mr. Liggers Charlene McKenna as The Marchioness Jonathan Coy as Rev.
