More comments on Oliver Twist from Tom:

The casting of Oliver himself was crucial to the production’s success, as actor  Tom Hardy, who plays a suitably brooding yet menacingly sexy Bill Sikes,  testifies. “William is a particularly special young man,” said 30-year-old  Hardy, last seen to devastating effect in the title role of BBC2’s adaptation of  cult novel Stuart: A Life Backwards. “He took such a heavy weight on his  shoulders, at such a young age. The good thing about William is that he’s very  good-looking, but in a real way - he’s not pretty. There’s always the danger  that Oliver can go the way of that Where is love? song - and we didn’t want  that, no way! For me, that’s toe-curlingly saccharine .“I  like my boys to have a little bit of Cool Hand Luke in them. There’s a little  Cool Hand Luke in Will. He can sit and listen, and I think that’s really  important to learn like that, early in life. He personifies that as a young man. “It wasn’t easy for William. If I come running at you as Bill Sikes with  a pair of gloves and a long frock-coat, all scarred and menacing, I’d put the  wind up you. For a little lad to put up with that, I know it must have been  frightening. “I remember having to do scenes where I’d be grabbing him,  carrying him and threatening him, and that’s a lot to put onto a young mind. I  know it’s before the watershed, but it can affect kids - the Fagins, the Nancys,  the prostitutes, peddlers, murderers, big dogs.”

Tom Hardy gets into character.
Sikes is the black heart of the show and Tom Hardy who plays him is fast making  a reputation for himself thanks to shows such as Cape Wrath. For Oliver, Tom  admits he got a little bit too into character at times. 
 He said: “I was  having a laugh with one of the crew, wrestling him, then I bit him on the head  as a bit of a joke. “It was just me keeping the character ticking over  but the team did say, ‘Tom, can you calm down?’.”

Tom on his powerful portrayal of Bill Sikes in Oliver Twist:
 
 “In previous versions, there has been a kind of hamminess to Sikes. He has been played as a towering rock of emotionless violence.
Oliver Reed’s portrayal, magnificent as it was, showed him as a Neanderthal beast, and you did wonder what Nancy was doing with him.
In Sarah’s script she sees much more tenderness in the relationship. In the end, he kills Nancy, but he is haunted to his own grave by her death. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not playing him crying over kittens. Sikes is still a turd that’s managed to float to the top of a shit pile that the Dickensian underworld represents.”
From The Times Online
(he’s not playing him as crying over kittens because he’s too busy rescuing kittens, and we all know this)
