The Grave Digger & The Goblin Queen


This is the third of our short-story adaptations from Charles Dickens’ “The Pickwick Papers” and his first Yuletide supernatural tale.  It tells of Gabriel Grub, a morose, lonely and drunken grave digger who hates people, particularly during the festive season.  

One Christmas Eve, while at work in the graveyard, he encounters a startlingly scary Goblin Queen (and her many subjects), who terrorises and whisks him away to her underworld lair where Grub is shown the true human values of the season.

Dickens was to return triumphantly to this theme seven years later with “A Christmas Carol”.
