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!
