This leaves the children with no home or guardian. Now the two must struggle to survive on the streets of London, where they learn that there difficult ways of making a living and help is where they least expect it.Written by

Worthwhile to Watch Series set in Victorian England
Hello. I did enjoy watching this series. As an American, it was interesting and eye opening to get a glimpse of English life at that time. Not very pleasant!! I think the production did the best they could given budgetary constraints. I agree that some of the acting was a little uneven. I thought David Collings was a convincing and sympathetic figure. Some of the other cast not so much. A few of the accents were difficult to understand. I enjoyed the theme music. Overall I did like this series even with the occasional lump!!
