Micawber is a 2001 ITV comedy drama series starring David Jason. It was written by John Sullivan, based upon the character of Wilkins Micawber from Charles Dickens' novel David Copperfield, although the storylines were original. Sullivan had originally written an adaptation of Dickens' novel which was rejected by the BBC in favour of the 1999 Adrian Hodges adaptation.[1]

It was broadcast in four parts, the first part on Boxing Day 2001 and starred a number of well-known British actors and actresses. Notably, the first episode was scheduled against the BBC's sitcom Only Fools and Horses, also starring Jason and written by Sullivan.[2]
