Oliver, Rose, Fagin, Bill Sikes, and Mr. Bumble are flat characters, and Nancy is one of the only complex characters. This makes the story much more black and white morally, which allows for Dickens to give an explicit moral message. In this case, the explicit goodness or badness of the main characters makes the social messages about the failings of society to take care of the poor and helpless more clear and more powerful.
