Jim Broadbent plays a a genial Scrooge but still seems to please the critics

Jim Broadbent has returned to the stage for the first time in a decade to play Scrooge in a new West End version of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol.

The classic adaptation, which opened on Wednesday, is presented on a set designed like a Victorian toy theatre.

Broadbent plays his role with an undercurrent of his well-known affability, according to the critics.

Yet he said his Scrooge had been partly inspired by modern bankers and the issue of pay-day loans.

There are an awful lot of echoes of whats going on today. We dont mention pay day loans but its implied, he said.
