Jonny Lee Miller,
If you're a self-proclaimed Austenite you'll probably hate the series, but if you watch it for what it is instead of what it's based on, you'll probably love it or at least enjoy it. The writing and acting is good, the jokes are funny, the lead female protagonist is smart and outspoken but not faultless and grows with each episode, and the chemistry and slow build up of romance between her and her love interest is the best I've seen from a period drama in a while. There are a couple of subplots that don't really interest me, but other than that this is a great series for period drama lovers.
