Lost in Austen Episode Two


Gentle Readers in the UK, let us know what you think of the second episode of Lost in Austen (or feel free to liveblog–post comments during the broadcast–if you like.)

Professor Kathryn Sutherland wrote a bit about LiA in The Guardian:

I don’t mind if Elizabeth stays out of it, but I wonder how she will cope with the 21st century. What happens when she goes into Boots for some birch twigs to clean her teeth?

She’ll probably just ASK FOR A TOOTHBRUSH. (Bring the dead horse over here and let us beat it some more! more! more!)

I’m worried about how they will deal with the deeper parts of the novel – the relationship between Jane and Mr Bingley, and Lydia’s elopement with Wickham.

Erm…clearly somebody hasn’t read the spoilers. 😉
