Trivia The Man Who Invented Christmas

A big part of the cast has previously been on TV series Doctor Who. Dickens' family had a pet raven, which died while the family were not at home. Dickens told this story to Edgar Allan Poe and he wrote a poem about the bird. Christopher Plummer is the oldest actor to play Scrooge. In fact, the character is apparently elderly in the book, but in the previous films he was played by middle aged actors.
