Mr Dorrit has returned to Venice a shadow of his former self, in the penultimate episode of Andrew Davies's adaptation of the Dickensian drama. Unravelled by the constant reminders in London of his unhappy, shameful past, Mr Dorrit begins to fall apart while Amy looks on, powerless. His one remaining wish is for a future together with Mrs General, but is the contemplation of such a future enough to spur him on?

Meanwhile, Pancks discovers the whereabouts of Miss Wade for Arthur, who wastes no time in heading to her new address in Whitstable to ask her where he might find Rigaud. He's increasingly convinced that Rigaud's hold over the House of Clennam has something to do with the family's secret past – and he's determined to put a stop to Rigaud's machinations and uncover the truth about that past for himself.
