He and his sister, Jane (Zo? Wanamaker), move into the peaceful little house and begin a repressive regime. Peggotty is powerless to protect David and finds herself sidelined. Murdstone?s loathing of the boy brings them to a confrontation that leads to David being sent away to school, where Mr. Creakle (Ian McKellen) beats him as a matter of course but where he meets James Steerforth (Harry Lloyd), who becomes his friend and protector. After his mother dies, David is sent to London to work in a blacking factory, lodging with the shabby but genteel Wilkins Micawber (Bob Hoskins) and his adoring but emotional wife (Imelda Staunton).
