Trivia
Miranda Richardson was set to play Mrs Squeers, but she declined so she could concentrate on three much more demanding roles in Spider (2002).

Timothy Spall previously appeared in The Royal Shakespeare Company's landmark 9-hour stage adaptation of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby (1980), playing Mr. Folair and Young Wackford. He had left the company by the time it was filmed for television as The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby (1982) and thus does not appear in that mini series.

Mrs. Crummles: Let us use our bodies as instruments, and quiver together, until music comes out.

John Browdie: Wait. I say Wait. I've come from the schoolhouse. Mr Squeers says he was attacked. Beaten, and nearly sensless. When he said it was thee who did it, I knew thee must nor be allowed to leave...

John Browdie: [of the kidnapped Smike] He's in the schoolmaster's room, next to Tilda's and my room.
