A true Janian reply! Good angels be my guard! She comes from the other world: from the abode of people who are dead and tells me so here, alone. If I dared, I'd touch you to see if you were substance or shadow. Truant! Truant! Absent from me a whole month- and forgetting me quite, I'll be sworn!

Have to say I liked the 1983 version until I saw this one. Wow! Where has it been hiding all these years. Michael Jayston is amazing as Rochester. His acting is superb and he is wonderfully witty in the part. Most actors who have portrayed Rochester have managed to portray some aspects of the character well, but somehow Jayston manages to get everything right. Sorcha Cusack is excellent as Jane, a really moving performance. Rochester and Jane just look right together in this adaptation, you can really believe in the characters. My only quibble with this adaptation is that it is not long enough, I could have done with a lot more of the same. My recommendation is make sure that you don't miss this 1973 version, it's a joy to watch.
