ST MARY HOO, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 03: The view out over East Hoo Creek on the Hoo Peninsular, where the countryside was an inspiration for locations in Charles Dickens' novels on February 3, 2012 in St Mary Hoo, England. The bicentenary of Charles Dickens' birth, one of England's greatest ever authors, is marked on February 7, 2012. Dickens' novels, written and set during the Victorian period, represent some of English literature's most iconic texts. His work which concentrates largely on social injustice, continues to hold relevance with over 300 film and television adaptations based on his books. (Photo by Oli Scarff/Getty Images) less
