David Jason plays Wilkins Micawber, a good hearted book keeper who is tricked into making a serious mistake and suffers in poverty for years afterwards. This is the Victorian back-story of Charles Dickens' famous character from David Copperfield. David Jason shines as a man who is desperate to keep up appearances and maintain his ever growing family. But a cruel money-lender is after his blood. Despite all his problems he remains upbeat and his catchphrase is "something will turn up, it always does."
