North and South. They will love you forever!

Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South is lovely and has a very gorgeous and brooding Richard Armitage as its star!!

I have just started on the old BBC adaptation of Middlemarch from back in 1994 starring a young Rufus Sewell. Oh yes grin

Definitely North and South smile
Pride and prejudice Colin firth version
Persuasion, Amanda root as Anne Eliot
The Forsyth saga
Our mutual friend, though Dickens and so somewhat less cheerful!

He's rather young and swoon worthy in Cold Comfort Farm too elporto though more an afternoon delight than boxset.

You sold it better Pantah wink

Would agree with the Forsyte Sage too.

I love the adaptation of Emma with Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller.

A Handful of Dust (with James Wilby and Kristin Scott Thomas)

Yes to North and South and Middlemarch.

Also, there's a nice Anthony Trollope box set which includes The Way We Live Now etc The Palliser box set also.
Wuthering Heights - the one with Tom Hardy, and Andrew Lincoln as Edgar Linton

Daniel Deronda (the one with Hugh Bonneville as Grandcourt - I think he's great in this)

The Emma Thompson Sense and Sensibility is absolutely the best period drama ever!. And it has Alan Rickman in it.

Hakluyt Mon 08-Dec-14 17:08:44

Damn. 44 seconds too late!
