Diminutive Webster star Emmanuel Lewis is virtually the whole show in this made-for-TV update of Oliver Twist. Upset when his divorced fashion-designer mother (Lynne Moody) relocates to London, 8-year-old Davey Williams (Lewis) runs away. Soon thereafter, he joins up with a group of orphaned "buskers" (street entertainers), who are actually pint-sized pickpockets, the disciples of Faginlike Leo Porter (Freddie Jones). How long will it be before Davey reforms the urchins and orchestrates a reconciliation between his mom and dad (Ben Vereen)? Filmed on location, Lost in London premiered courtesy of CBS on November 20, 1985.
