by Charles Dickens
Adapted and produced by Charles Lefeaux in twelve episodes
Among the most frequent callers at the Nicklebys' cottage is Frank Cheeryble, nephew to the brothers, who is clearly losing his heart to Kate. Smike's health gives rise to anxiety.
Mr. Cheeryble, wishing to give financial assistance to the young and beautiful Madeline Bray, daughter of his childhood sweetheart, who lives in distress with her ailing and unkind father, asks Nicholas to act as his representative.
Newman Noggs overhears the miser, Arthur Gride, plotting with Ralph Nickleby to marry Madeline and so possess himself of the fortune which, unknown to her, will be hers when she marries. Meanwhile, Nicholas has fallen in love with her.
