Storyline

Charles is doing quite well having received yet another commission. He's also found a new illustrator for the Pickwick Papers, which is proving to be a great success. Offers continue to present themselves. Kate is pregnant, expecting their first child. A dream about an orphan boy leads him to write Oliver Twist. He researches the subject thoroughly actually visiting prisons and following a jailer's suggestion that such boys are often pickpockets. In many ways, it reminds him of his own youth. Kate is concerned about Charles' frequent absences and there is no doubt he has many admirers. His brother Fred suggests that he spend more time with Kate, whose mental state is quite fragile.
