THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD is a UK comedy drama based on the novel by Charles Dickens.

Violence

There are infrequent fistfights and slaps, often comicly depicted, and a scene implying Copperfield's step-father beat him. During a fantasy sequence Copperfield imagines a cruel relative getting her hand crushed in a factory machine, but there is no strong detail.

Threat and horror

During a storm at sea efforts are made to reach a man out on a boat, but he is washed overboard and later found dead.

Injury detail

Following a brief fight in a butcher's yard David is seen with a slightly bloodied face and shirt, although it is implied this is largely from a spilled bucket rather than his own blood.

A man melodramatically talks about ending his life, although it is clear he has no real intention to. There are references to drinking and people behaving drunkenly.
