Andrew Davies
26 August 2001 | by (Nottingham, England.) – See all my reviews

Just thought I had to comment on this, since I never knew it was written by Andrew Davies, the man behind adaptations of 'Bridget Jones's Diary' and countless television classics like 'House of Cards', 'To Serve Them All My Days', 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Emma', as well as one of my all time favourite TV series, 'A Very Peculiar Practice'.

'Educating Marmalade' also starred the wonderful Charlotte Coleman from 'Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit', 'Four Weddings and a Funeral', and the much underrated (did anybody else see it?) Simon Nye ('Men Behaving Badly') comedy 'How Do You want Me?' with the brilliant Dylan Moran and Frank Finlay.
