Did You Know?


On Wednesday, 11th December 2019 ITV announced that it would not be commissioning a second series of the period drama due to disappointing viewing figures. An ITV spokesperson said "We loved Sanditon and we were very proud to have it on ITV. We would have loved it to return, but unfortunately we just didn't get the audience that would make that possible for us, which is heartbreaking for everybody involved in this wonderful adaptation. Sanditon is yet to air in the US and we hope they may find a way of continuing with this series." This is the second ITV period drama to be cancelled before it has aired in the U.S. following on from the announcement that Beecham House would not be recommissioned. See more »

Bring on Season 2!
16 October 2019 | by tinyfeet69See all my reviews

With social media being as it is, you cannot help but get roped into all the controversy going on about this show. So I took a look at some YouTube clips and other things going around on Twitter and Instagram etc and got the general gist of what the show is all about. All I can say, is that I was hooked - right from the very first clip. Whoever had the brilliant idea to cast Theo James as the tall, dark, mysteriously brooding Sidney Parker should be applauded. He is absolutely brilliant in this role. I have seen him in other things, but I think this has really showed how good of an actor he really is. Of course he is handsome (any red blooded female can see that) but that didn't even matter to me, because he brought Sidney Parker to life for me. He made me fall in love with him just as Charlotte did and he made me irritated and annoyed just as Charlotte was. He is just an amazing actor and he suited this role to a tee. Charlotte's character (played by Rose Williams) took me a while to warm up to but I found her maturing with each episode and I liked her spunk and charisma but I also liked her softer more vulnerable side which came out slowly as she begun to realize her true feelings for Sidney. Rose is a very talented actor as well. She is exactly how I would picture Charlotte to be.

So to all you people saying how horrible it is and that Jane Austen would be turning in her grave etc etc, I say - SO WHAT! I have a sneaky suspicion that she really isn't worried about it in the slightest. Get over yourselves, get a glass of wine, sit back and just enjoy this wonderfully lovely romantic story. I did! Bring on season 2!!!
