I wonder what Mr C will make of Blandings, as he's such a fan. I've seen the first episode and it's a very fine pig!
I didn't hate Marchioness, but they made it so terribly bland. Was not a good sign that they couldn't trust the audience to cope with the name!

Cornflower

Indeed!

Claire

I recorded this but will now just delete it without watching. Thanks for the warning.

I didn't watch the programme, but have been sitting here today reading the book, which is excellent so far. Just finished the first section, and can understand why Elaine said Joanna Lumley was miscast... cannot for the life of me imagine her as Lady Maria.

I read it more than ten years ago and I remember enjoying it very much indeed. The programme had me thinking I was confusing it with another book, so ridiculous was its treatment.

Cornflower

We watched it right to the end but that was because we were transfixed by its awfulness!

Mary

I noticed that Emily's wedding dress was on display in the Persephone shop window this afternoon. I wonder what they made of it?
