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 »
Edward Fairfax Rochester:
Jane, I want a wife. I want a wife, not a nursemaid to look after me. I want a wife to share my bed every night. All day if we wish. If I can't have that, I'd rather die. We're not the platonic sort, Jane.
[Take his face in her hands as she faces him]
Can you see me?
[Rochester nods yes]
Then hear this Edward. Your life is not yours to give up. It is mine. All mine. And I forbid it.
[Begin kissing, camera pans out, music swells]

I was looking forward to this series and wasn't disappointed. In my humble opinion its one of the best series the BBC have ever produced and in Toby Stephens Rochester we saw one of the greatest performances seen on British television. His scenes with Jane (Ruth Wilson) towards the end of episode 4 were extremely emotional. In fact I can't watch Toby's scenes back without crying my eyes out. I've grown to care about Rochester and thats undoubtedly due to the depth of feeling Toby gave to the role. I look forward to seeing this amazing actor in future roles.
I do hope the music from the series will be issued on CD.
