This deficiency, I don't regret. (But actually, some recent Dickens dramatizations have gone far overboard in depicting filth & squalor.)
One of the easiest ways to throw me out of a Victorian-era show (film or television) is to have it be spotlessly clean in inappropriate places. When you see cities back in the 1800s (not to mention rural areas), there was dirt, belching black and white smoke, stains, etc. everywhere.
