    ^ for new Lewis, I knew they couldn't stay away.

    for the Bill Nighy drama. I remember really liking Page Eight but don't remember a lot of details -- I hope they repeat it before they show the new ones.

    Not quite so sure about Death Comes to Pemberley. The book was somewhat of a disappointment to me, but it might make good fodder for TV. And I really like Anna Maxwell Martin, she'll make a great Elizabeth. Matthew Rhys could be great as Darcy too, he's definitely got the right look about him.

    Miss Marple -- meh. Julia McKenzie is ok, but if it isn't Joan Hickson, it isn't Marple imo.

    Oh, man. Endless Night scared the ever-living CRAP out of me way back when.

    . . . But now I'm kind of curious to see what the adaptation will be like. The book didn't have Miss Marple, so I wonder how they'll work her in.

    Yes x2! And my memories are not even that distant as I re-watched both last summer.

    Yes to the former. I never saw the latter.

    Both excellent examples of TV adaptations that were better than their source novels, btw. (IMO at least.)

    I love Jewel In The Crown. I have the DVDs- and still re-watch it from time to time. I haven't ever seen Brideshead, but I also have that. It's on my list.

    Loved both. Discovered Charles Dance in Jewel in the Crown One of the reasons I watched Brideshead was because of Anthony Andrews.

    The older version of Brideshead is terrific. The newer shorter version doesn't quite measure up.

    I prefer to ignore the existence of the newer, shorter version. The Anthony Andrews / Jeremy Irons version is the alpha and the omega.

    I was not aware of a newer, shorter version. I don't intend to watch it. Yup, nothing like Andrews & Irons in their prime.

    Did anyone watch Van Gogh: Painted with Words last night? Two of my favourite things together, Van Gogh and Benedict Cumberbatch.

    It repeats on Saturday on the Seattle affiliate.

    ^ If you're watching on the Seattle affiliate, it's on Thursday instead. (They're repeating Endeavour on Sunday.) So ... check your local listings.
