Oh the absolute irony of the words of the character played by Dominic West in this trailer!! Wasn't he start shagging Lily James when he was filming this TV series???

This will be on BBC from 9th May - looks good.

Tbh I don’t fancy this at all. The book is great, but trailer looks like a Duran Duran video.

I read the book earlier this year. I enjoyed it but didn’t love it. I’ll give the TV series a go.

There was an interview in the guardian with Lily James which seemed to suggest something sexy going on between Fanny and Linda which I am not looking forward to if true. I get that Linda is bursting but that seems off.

I like the look of Andrew Scott as Merlin. Is Freddie Fox Tony? Not sure I like that casting if so.

That looks absolute dross!

I loved the one with Alan Bates as Uncle Matthew.

I LOVED the original (probably on YouTube) and fancy hot priest so will give this a go

Oh got confused- I watched love in a cold climate before.

Think I will try this and see what it's like. I rarely watch live TV so miss the ads, but have been watching Line of Duty recently.

Love the book but this looks awful.

They've obviously tried to 'sex it up'. Did my ears deceive me or was Fanny referred to as Franny in the trailer?

lavieengrenache Thu 06-May-21 13:48:43

Nope, sorry it was my ears.

Agree that the trailer looks like a Duran Duran video!! grin

I remember really enjoying this book a few years ago so will watch this. I really recognise the actress playing Linda, what else has she been in?

ChessieFL Thu 06-May-21 17:59:08

Lily James - she was in Mamma Mia Here We Go Again and Downton Abbey

Tianatiers Fri 07-May-21 16:32:31

Oh yes thank you, she has completely different hair in this which confused me!

I also think the trailer looks like a Duran Duran video, in which case - I’m in! grin

With Rosamund Pike? I saw that, think it was on Netflix recently.

I haven't read any of the books but this sounds similar in plot. Are they not just an amalgamation of several of them?

LadyCatLover2 Sun 09-May-21 21:00:31

This is on tonight at 9.

I think I'll give it a go.

So, Christmas 1927. Deciduous trees in full green leaf. I know I'm a pedant but this really annpys me!

Butterbeers Sun 09-May-21 21:09:19

How many women called Linda were around in 1920ish?

UCOinanOCG Sun 09-May-21 21:10:34

God this is shit

Archiduchesse Sun 09-May-21 21:14:16

Going to give it five more minutes to see if it improves and if not switching off.

lollipoprainbow Sun 09-May-21 21:17:55
