Doctor Who star, Ncuti Gatwa, is taking on the lead role in Audible’s retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic, David Copperfield.
It follows last year’s Oliver Twist which starred Heartstopper‘s Kit Connor. Alongside Gatwa will be The White Lotus‘ Theo James and The Crown‘s Helena Bonham Carter.
Also starring will be Jessie Buckley, Richard Armitage, Jack Lowden, and Toby Jones.
Viewed by Dickens as his “favourite child,” the story focuses on David Copperfield (Gatwa) as he finds his way in a challenging world.
A synopsis reads: “We journey with David as he comes across his eccentric Aunt Betsey (Bonham-Carter), the faithful Peggotty (Buckley) and loquacious Mr.Micawber (Jones), comes up against the villainous Micawbers
