  1. I just finished the whole series on PBS, for the second time! Really enjoyed it. It was a kick to see Judi Dench as such a softie! Haven't seen her in that type of role in a long time. Anyway, it was a well done production in every way. It did not have the passion and high emotion of Glaskell's N&S, or the 2005 P&P production, but the characterization was great and the acting superb.

  2. Yeah, it was nice to see Judi Dench in a softie role. She almost always plays the villain roles, lol. Glad to see her softie side for a change and she was great in this one.

    Simon Woods (aka Mr. Bingley) was good here as well. Claudie Blakley (aka Charlotte Lucas) was not much in here and I almost didn't notice her, lol.
