The lavender dress Jane wears when she prepares for Mary and Diana's return is the same dress Esther Summerson wears in 2005's Bleak House (2005). In "Jane Eyre" it is worn without a lace collar. See more »
In the establishing long shoot of the scene, "An Ernest Proposal," Rochester is standing in the shade and Jane is walking from the sun into the shaded area. When the dialog begins, although they've maintained their positions, Jane is now standing in the shade and Rochester is standing in the sun. This is probably due to the dialog being filmed at a different time. See more »
It is superb, anyone who does not like this version is mad, it has all the right qualities for a classic, Ruth Wilson is superb and i cannot believe that she is only fresh out of drama school what a brilliant actress she is amazing and has at last created the perfect Jane, fiery yet innocent, sad yet elated, she has brought the character off the paper and to life, and Toby Stephens OH MY GOD what a Rochester, hes is so gorgeous, we can now see what Jane is so attracted to, he has created a Rochester that is a certain rival for Mr Darcy sex god status. But he has also showed us the tortured soul that Rochester really was, shutting himself away while all the while just wanting someone to really love and love him in return.
I have seen nearly all the adaptations of Jane Eyre and this is the best in my opinion, not since P AND P have i had this much anticipation for a Sunday nights television
Well done BBC you have done it once again.
