Last Sunday night it was Emma, tonight at 8.30 it's Persuasion...if you're going to watch it, I'll love it again if you drop in here afterwards, or tomorrow, to debrief.
Doesn't matter whether you've read the novel or not - in fact I would like to hear what you make of this show if you have no previous notion of what Persuasion is, is about, or should be. (Although, if you haven't read it, and you don't like the show, try not to let it put you off the book for ever.)
This week's pre-emptive whinge concerns Captain Wentworth's complexion. If a gentleman has been at sea since well before his voice broke, I think his face should be just a little more browned and creased than the Standard English biscuit-dough visage of R P-J.
