Charles told me your secret. It is my secret too. I shall get my paws on Darcy and I shall marry him because it is correct, and necessary and expected by everyone including God. But the physical society of men is something I have never sought. I shall endure it with Darcy because endurance is a speciality of our sex. But the poetry of Sappho is the only music that shall ever touch my heart, though I have yet to play upon the um... instrument myself.

I am a bit of a purist but I find this drama a breath of fresh air too. Wonderfully funny. Alex Kingston is very good as Mrs Bennett, a much more serious version and Hugh Bonneville is lovely.
I too wonder what Lizzie is up to in the 21st Century, especially as she obvious planned it, telling her father she was going away for a while and then locking the door. Maybe they can do a sequel with her story. I bet she turns Amanda's slobby boyfriend into a gentleman.
Only gripe, they mentioned her strange clothes but not her "strange to them" hairstyle, which she still has.
Also Jane is not as pretty as she should be (being described as the prettiest by her mother), no wonder Bingley prefers Amanda!
