After hearing you talk about the TV movie adaptation of Dr. Thorne, I watched it with my mom and my sister. They haven’t read the Trollope novel but they enjoyed it. With its many romantic/financial plot twists and turns, so I’m not surprised it was the book Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) chose to adapt. The grand locations and Victorian costumes looked splendid. It’s always interesting to see versatile Brit actors popping up in other roles. The sweet and honorable Mary is played by the same actress who played the young Jane Tennyson in the Prime Suspect prequel. Young aristocrat Frank is played by the actor who is currently portraying the young humble Drake in this season of Poldark.

I’d have to say that Colin Firth is my favourite of the existing Darcy performances. Yeah, that swimming scene was wrong but I guess they were trying to man him up by showing him shaking off the trappings of society and taking pleasure at being on his home turf. I think they cribbed the idea from A Room With A View which had a much better (and naked-er) swimming scene. I don’t have a favourite Elizabeth. Jennifer Ehle is too restrained and Keira Knightly too unrestrained.
