He is released from prison to Ernest Defarge, and then to his daughter, Lucie, and the banker Jarvis Lorry. Dr. Manette, Mr. Lorry, and Lucie travel to London.

His 18 years in prison for threatening to expose the crimes of the corrupt aristocrats the St. Evremonde brothers have robbed him of in his previous life. When we first meet him, he has no memory of his previous life or family. But through the love of his daughter Lucie, Dr. Manette is resurrected, regains his memory, and reestablishes himself as a doctor in London.
