Wide Sargasso Sea

A new adaptation of Jean Rhys's revisionist novel - Wide Sargasso Sea - about the first Mrs Rochester was aired on BBC4 last night.

Rafe Spall, who played a younger Mr Rochester off to seek his fortune in the West Indies, was pretty hot.

As was the weather in Jamaica no doubt.

And also the furnace of a fire at Thornfield Hall.

And additionally the bedroom scenes.

I'm so sorry I missed it-is it a one off do you know or are there plans to repeat it? I've always loved the book but it's always interesting to see how they adapt novels for the screen.
Never mind, I shall just have to get it out and read it again!
