If I really love the 90’s Pride and Prejudice series, what else might I like?

I need something to binge. I’ve got Netflix, Amazon Prime and some Sky channels and On Demand stuff through Virgin Media.

Any suggestions?

Downton Abbey

if you want something racier, Bridgerton grin

Seen all 3. Wasn’t that impressed by Bridgerton tbh, the girl got on my nerves!

Death comes to Pemberley.

Love and Friendship

Persuasion (there are many versions - I quite like the most recent BBC attempt which is probably 10 years old but I love the Ciaran Hinds version)

BBC version of Emma with Romola Garai and Jonny something.

I loved the Tenant of Wildfell Hall but that's ancient and unlikely to be available.

North and South

North and South

Not much really comes close to the BBC pride and prejudice.

Jane eyre?

You’ve probably seen the Emma Thompson version of Sense and Sensibility?

Room with a View with Helena BC?

All the Emmas are great imho too.

Remains of the Day.

I loved pride and prejudice but also loved Bridgerton

PuppyMonkey Fri 11-Jun-21 20:45:44

Bridgerton was terrible and not in a good way imho.

Sanditon? (I recorded it but haven't watched it - don't know why).

Outlander (only series 1 but it is v violent)

Medici on Netflix if you like a bit of Italian history but aren't bothered by accuracy and Dustin Hoffman playing a medieval Italian)

Is it the romance or it being a period drama?

For starters:
North and Southgate
Wives and Daughters
Dr Thorne
Any other Jane Austen, the 1996 Persuasion in particular.
Anne of Green Gables 80s version
Cranford

RiverSkater Fri 11-Jun-21 20:49:21

South not Southgate bloody football!!

North and South (if you can find it- I still have it on DVD!)
Sanditon
Tenant of Wildfell was lovely, if anyone knows where to find it, please say!

Larkrise To Candleford

Cowbells Fri 11-Jun-21 20:52:22

Cranford with Judi Dench - really heartwarming
Persuasion with Amanda Root - exceedingly good
The Way We Live Now with Anton Lesser
Vanity Fair with Olivia Cooke

Snozzlemaid Fri 11-Jun-21 20:52:33

Definitely North and South

ArseInTheCoOpWindow Fri 11-Jun-21 20:53:33

Anything with Colin Firth in....😍

Bridget Jones?

ElizabethTudor Fri 11-Jun-21 20:54:02

Jane Eyre with Ruth Wilson & Toby Stephens (fit)

mogtheexcellent Fri 11-Jun-21 20:55:21

The hattie morahan sp? version of sense and sensibility is the best imo. Also ciaran hinds persuasion.

Death comes to pemberly is also very good.

Laska2Meryls Fri 11-Jun-21 20:55:31

The 1983 Mansfield Park with Sylvestra Le Touzel and Anna Massey ?
Emma with Kate Beckinsale and Mark Strong
Barchester Chronicles with Alan Rickman

Jane Eyre, the Samantha Morton and Cieran Hinds version. They were exactly as the book. It’s on eBay for about £2!
