Sense and Sensibility 08

I'm really looking forward to the new adaptation of Sense and Sensibility. I've just finished writing Colonel Brandon's Diary (which will be out sometime in 2008) so I'm particularly interested to see what Andrew Davies makes of Brandon. From the trailers, it seems as though we're going to see more of him than we usually do, which is a good thing, I think,




Meanwhile, I found this wonderful picture and caption on the BBC site.

"Janet McTeer and Charity Wakefield know there's always going to be some
picky person who'll spot that their costumes aren't quite period-perfect."





Let's hope the series also displays a sense of humour, because although I'm a sucker for historical drama, Austen is also very funny and her humour is sometimes forgotten in TV dramas.

And come back and visit the blog later in the week / month to share your views on this new adaptation and to read about ours!

Oh, I didn't know they were remaking S&S. I must admit I did love Alan Rickman as Colonel Brandon - his voice just does it for me!!!! Actually, I seem to have had a JA week since I rewatched P&P (Keira one) and Bride and Prejudice on TV and then got out Becoming Jane on DVD!!! Anyway, hope you all have a fabulous 2008!!!!
