The Artful Dodger Storyline

Set in the bustling colony of Port Victory, Australia, in the 1850s, Jack Dawkins (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) is The Artful Dodger—his quick, pickpocketing fingers have evolved into the deft hands of a medical surgeon. With the advent of Fagin (David Thewlis), Dodger’s past comes back to haunt him, drawing him into the realm of crime once more. The Governor’s daughter, Lady Belle (Maia Mitchell), who is adamant about being the first female surgeon in the colony, poses a more significant threat to Dodger’s heart. Everything from heists to critical surgery to the brutal reality of the criminal underworld mixing with the middle class and gentry, The Artful Dodger has it all.
