On Christmas Eve, Jacob Marley, money-lender and partner to Ebenezer Scrooge, is visiting clients to collect their outstanding debts. His first stop is the Old Curiosity Shop, where old Grandfather is keeping vigil beside the desperately sick Little Nell.

Meanwhile gang-master and pimp Fagin has arranged for street girl Nancy to visit Marley for his evening’s entertainment.

Things take a nasty turn for the money-lender though, and as the clock chimes 9pm, Marley’s dead body is found lying in the snow.
