1st time round i didnt really get into it but this time....loved it.

Darcy nicer than colin (ducks quickly from flying objects) and the guy that played charles too AND Wickam. actually apart from the snakey mr collins all the guys were pretty fit!

wish my neck was as smooth and sleek as Janes!

Hugh Bonneville was brilliantly funny, as was Alex Kingston.

anyone else? wouldnt you love to go through a narnia door into your fave book/film/tv prog?

id be lost inausten too, and the tardis too!

I saw it first time round and loved it. But I bought it for my mum who's a big Austen fanand don't think she even watched it (didn't like the idea of it!).
I know what you mean about the guys...but will always love Colin!
So many books I'd love to visit...might not be brave enough for tardis though!

its one of those progs thats still on my mind after its gone IYSWIM. lingers on.

like the way Amanda said she preferred that world of etiquette and manners and politeness and gentlemen and ladies.

yep. me too. afternoon tea anyone? and a crochet hour?

Iwouldlike .. as a huge Austen fan I know what your mum means. I've never found a spin-off Austen book that wasn't rubbish, Death in Pemberley probably being the worst of all time, so I approached this series with grave doubts myself.

However Lost in Austen was really charming. She should give it a try.
