Escape of the Artful Dodger is an Australian children's television series from 2001, which ran for one season (thirteen episodes) and starred Luke O'Loughlin as the Artful Dodger and Rowan Witt (Spoon Boy) as Oliver Twist.The series is a Broad Strokes sequel to the classic novel Oliver Twist, and centers around Jack Dawkins ("Known to my friends and hintimate acquaintances as the Artful Dodger"), who after his arrest is being sent to the penal colony of New South Wales, Australia, together with another prisoner around the same age, named "Wild" Will Grady; really an aspiring actor framed for crimes he didn't commit. On the same ship is also Oliver Twist, who is being sent to Australia by his grandfather, Mr. Brownlow (officially so that he can learn the family shipping trade, but in reality because Mr. Brownlow wants to get him away from the corrupting influences of London) and Hannah Schuller, a German family friend of Mr. Brownlow's, who is going to Australia to live with her brother Michael.On the journey to Australia, Oliver learns that the ship's bo'sun is planning to steal Hannah's jewelry and both frame and kill the Dodger and Will for it, and soon all four of them are on the run from the law — thanks to the head of the law in New South Wales, the greedy and corrupt Sergeant Bates, who has sneakily taken over Mr. Brownlow's warehouse and is turning a good profit that he doesn't want to lose, and therefore grabs all the chances he can get in order to get Oliver out of the way. Furthermore, Hannah's brother Michael has disappeared without a trace, and they have to find out what happened to him if they're going to have any hope of proving their innocence of the various crimes Sergeant Bates is accusing them of.A few citizens of New South Wales, who don't like Sergeant Bates, are willing to give what aid they can — most notably the young cleaning lady Becky Micawber (daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Micawber from David Copperfield) and the kindly Dr. Hartman, who become the group's main allies — but things don't exactly get easier when it turns out that the Dodger's old mentor Fagin has also made it to New South Wales, now with a new gang of urchins led by a tomboyish girl named Kelly, who views herself as the Dodger's replacement and is not happy at seeing her predecessor turning up on her turf.It's fortunate that the Artful Dodger has so many tricks in his arsenal, because he's going to need them if he's going to help Hannah and Oliver straighten everything out, find Hannah's brother, deal with his complitated relationship with Fagin, and most importantly become a serious thorn in the side of that villainous lawman, Sergeant Bates.

Character Development
 Series: Escape of the Artful Dodger / int_19586dfa
comment
Character Development: The Dodger goes through a bit during the series, going from a selfish and amoral Anti-Hero only in it for himself to a genuine hero who, while still not particularly respectable or moral, sticks up for his friends and does the right thing in the end. Oliver has gone through some development compared to the original novel; he's gone from Pinball Protagonist to a more proactive (if still rather wide-eyed) Smart Guy.

comment
Lighter and Softer: It's a kids' show, so the more gruesome aspects of Oliver Twist are toned down or just alluded to rather than shown. There's still quite a bit of the classic Dickensian commentary of the plight of the poor and on the slave-like conditions of the workhouses (complete with Obstructive Bureaucrat making speeches on how workhouses are a blessing that keep children safe and learning a trade), but the bleaker stuff is kept firmly off-screen.

It's Personal: Uriah Heep's main motivation for aiding Sergeant Bates is that he wants to get revenge on Mr. Micawber, who in David Copperfield exposed him as a cheat. Framing him for, let's say, theft would be a nice start... He even does a Just Between You and Me, where he gleefully admits to Micawber that he was the one who committed the crime Micawber is being blamed for, but that nobody's going to believe that.

comment
Broad Strokes: The series' treatment of the original novel; while it stays faithful to the characters and themes, it flat-out ignores the ending, going off in an Alternate Continuity direction shortly before the Dodger's arrest. Justified, as in the first episode, a fleeing Dodger briefly encounters Charles Dickens, who takes an interest when Dodger mentions "an orphan named Oliver Twist," suggesting that in this continuity, Dickens wrote Oliver Twist as a novel inspired by the "real" events and people.

comment
Wholesome Crossdresser: Hannah spends much of the series dressed in boy's clothes, in order to better hide from the authorities. Kelly dresses exclusively like a boy, though she makes no attempt to hide the fact that she is a girl.

Demoted to Extra: In the early episodes, Oliver is one of the main characters, second only in importance and screen-time to the Dodger. In most of the later episodes he gets very little to do and is mostly just "one of the gang."

comment
Morality Pet: Scratch, one of the youngest members of the Kelly Gang, is this to Kelly — she can get borderline Mama Bear if someone's threatening him. Even Fagin seems to have a soft spot for him, distressing when he vanishes and chiding the gang that they always have to look after the "young'uns."

comment
Lovable Rogue: The Dodger and Wild Will both fit this trope. Kelly starts out less sympathetically but eventually becomes one. Fagin, unlike many other modern depictions of him, is not really an example, though he is played marginally more sympathetic than he was in the book (and absolutely no mention is made of him being a Jew).

Secret Keeper: Becky Micawber and Dr. Hartman are the ones who hide Oliver and Hannah in the theater, and also end up in the know of most of the gang's secret schemes and plans.

comment
Just Like Robin Hood: Lampshaded by the Dodger, who at one point when the topic comes up in conversation admits that he robs from the rich but never from the poor — because the poor never have anything worth stealing.
