The New Magdalen was written simultaneously as a book and a play: the descriptions in the book of Lady Roy's house and the movement of characters through the various rooms apply equally well as stage directions.

Man and Wife was conceived as a play but appeared first in book form, while the novel, Jezebel's Daughter , took its origin from the play The Red Vial Despite his enthusiasm, Collins was never wholly successful as a dramatist and for some plays e. No Name he had difficulty in securing a theatre. There are thematic parallels with other books from Dickens's mature writings, including Little Dorrit and especially Our Mutual Friend The publication of the story in All The Year Round represents an early example of commercial merchandising , promoting the story to those who were aware of the stage play, and the play to those who had read the book.
The chapters of the book are referred to as ' acts ', and match the acts of the play.
In the book Collins assisted in Act 1 and Act 4;  Collins scripted most of the stage play with Dickens's assistance. The story contains crafted descriptions, well-drawn and diverse characters, eerie and exotic backgrounds, mystery, semi-concealed identities, brinkmanship with death, romance, the eventual triumph of Good over Evil, and many other elements expected in classic Dickens.
