yes, I've never seen The Wire though. But I did watch the film 300 a couple of weeks ago, he's in that as well.

Arthur's grandfather had left his business to Little Dorrit - is that right - simply because she happened to be born on the same day as his son's child (by a dancer) who died?? Or did h/she die?
The why, at the end, did Little Dorrit have nothing? Just because the house fell down, did all the business collapse, too? And what was the business in the first place?
Then, who was Arthur?? He wasn't his 'mother's' son?? Was he his 'father's' son?? Who was his mother?? She can't have been the dancer that his father had an affair with because that child was born on the same day as Little Dorrit, and Arthur was 10 years older than Little D.???
Why did they choose Little Dorrit to leave the money to, anyway?? And why didn't Arthur's father see to it that the will was honoured, no matter what his wife said?
Arthur's assumed mother was so apologetic to Little D...and yet what was she apologising for? What happened to all the family money - they didn't invest in the collapsed bank??
Hmm...I am utterly confused. Please can anyone help??

But a colleague sought me out today to see if I could explain it, and I couldn't, I was no wiser than her. I started reading the book but it will take me ages to finish it. I also taped it, so I can go back and watch again, but it's not very good, if people are left wondering. How did the murderer, Rigaud know all this, what was the deal with Tattycoram, how was she involved, how come Amy's sister speaks Cockney, and Amy who was born in prison, has a posher accent, and why aren't I in a relationship with Arthur Clennam? (That last question was a joke, but he is rather lovely ). If I find out any answers, I will let you know.
