A Christmas Carol is structured as a commentary on a core set of events. I’m often asked how to incorporate comedy into drama for learning –and here’s a good examplewe can learn from.
In L&D there is a widespread misconception that if you make a character bland, uncharacterised,or even not there, (by dint of putting the camera in the position of the protagonist), this willmaximise empathy. That isjust wrong. In this analysis I show how the Breaking Bad pilot episode creates a drug-dealing killer who isa sympathetic human being.
