The headline says it all–the Telegraph chose Sense and Sensibility 2008 as one of its top ten television productions of 2008.
4 Sense and Sensibility (BBC1)
Little Dorrit and The Devil’s Whore deserve mentions but it is Andrew Davies’s Sense and Sensibility that takes the 2008 costume drama honours. This delicate, heartfelt take on Austen’s tale looked gorgeous, but was still grubby in the right places, and contained a performance of great tenderness from Hattie Morahan (right) as Elinor. Bears comparison happily with Ang Lee’s excellent film from 1995.
Comparison? Oh yes. 😉 Thanks to Alert Janeite Lisa for the link.
