Commissioned by Film London and BBC Radio 4 , in celebration of the Double Centenary of Charles Dicken's birth. Dickens in London visualises 5 pre-recorded radio plays. The imagery is in ironic counterpoint to the audio and employs a collage of live action, animation and puppets to embody the voices. Other material was sourced from the very fabric of London, the Thames, Smithfields Meat Market as well as details collected from the Museum of London, the V and A Museum of Childhood and the Police Museums at  Wapping and Chatham. The papier-mache puppets, made by Gavin Glover were moulded from old copies of Dickens novels.

The feature length omnibus version premiered at the BFI Southbank in 2012.
