Whilst we’re still mopping our front bottoms with Tena Ladies from the cheeeeeenius-fest that is Cranford, let us draw your attention to the next period drama that we’ll be j’adoring cometh the new year.
‘Tis the adapation by Her Maj’s BBC the First of Lark Rise to Candleford, the semi-autobiographical trilogy by Flora Thompson about baking and bonnets
and bumming in late 19th century Oxfordshire. And what thrills us to within an inch of our crinoline smalls is that Dawny French is in it. As is Julia Sawalhahahahahaha. Yey!
*has a wet wee*
And while we’re at it, we may as well tell you about the other Beeb adaptation in the offing for early 2008, and that is Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility (for why do we need another?). That one’s starring Mark Gatiss and Janet McTeer and David Morrissey.
There endeth today’s lesson.
Now let’s watch Dawn French do something funny, prolly with Jennifer Saunders.
