Trivia

The black velvet striped day dress worn by an extra in a London street scene is the same costume Anna Chancellor (Caroline Bingley) wears at Netherfield Hall in Pride and Prejudice (1995), and Lindsay Duncan (Lady Catherine) wears at Longbourn in Lost in Austen (2008). The same costume is also worn by Janine Duvitski (Mrs. Bute Crawley) when Becky and Rawdon return to Queen's Crawley in Vanity Fair (1998). See more »

A delightful drama!
15 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This adaptation takes the book very seriously, and is a true adaptation. 14 episodes at first seemed a little daunting, but this series is captivating, with wonderful characters and fantastic cinematography. The soundtrack suits the series well, and just gives that extra touch to get the watcher crying, laughing, and sighing at the television screen! You truly feel like you are in the series, which makes it a series in a league of it's own. The casting is fantastic, and well done for Claire Foy - she portrayed the character brilliantly for a first large part! In the end, if I had to describe this series in one word; it's really, truly 'sweet' - there is no other word! - and will no doubt leave the viewer with a smile on their face by the end of it!
