We hated the book with the red-hot fire of a thousand suns and hate the whole idea of the film. Seriously, doesn’t the BBC have good sense, or taste? If they wanted to film fan fiction, there’s lots better out there. Something that’s not boring, and possibly funny, would have been a much better choice. The cast looks good, but one feels they might be somewhat wasted. They’re filming at Chatsworth, which is much too grand to be Pemberley, but that stagecoach long ago left the posting-inn, we suppose. Okay, shutting up now so as not to be a buzzkill.
