They adore good gossip; and romance and change is in the air, as the unwelcome grasp of the Industrial Revolution rapidly approaches their beloved rural market-town. I've not seen its like on television before; nor do I expect to see its like again. The greater part of the dialogue in the series is Jane Austen's own and every scene is included and follows the same chronological order.
The drama departs from the novel in only two instances.
Mr Darcy knows this, opting to display his facial hair in a more subtle manner. Get sideboards wrong and you end up looking like an angry farmer. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of a kettle must be in want of a man who can make a good brew. His eyes And he’ll tease you He’ll make teas for you With one sugar just to please you He’s obnoxious, but we don’t care Because he’s foxious His looks give all the ladies sighs He’s got Mister Darcy eyes 8. He’s got the look Only two men (both of whom are sadly fictional) can pull off Blue Steel: Mr Zoolander and Mr Darcy.
Get them right, and you could have some Darcy magic. He’s an expert photobomber Look at this picture below: Lizzy doesn’t know what’s going on.
Move over Cumberbatch, Darcy is the best photobomber in town. He’s clean While most men these days barely have the time for a quick shower and a spray of Lynx, bath-lover Darcy is busy scrubbing away to make sure he’s clean as a whistle.
Widow Dashwood and her three unmarried daughters, Elinor, Marianne and Margaret, inherit only a tiny allowance. Darcy reluctantly finds himself falling in love with a woman beneath his class. At 10, Fanny Price, a poor relation, goes to live at Mansfield Park, the estate of her aunt's husband, Sir Thomas.
There’s no way us norms can match a guy with a name like that. His hair If George Best’s and Michael Hutchence’s hair follicles went out for a drink, stumbled back to a hotel room together and fumbled around for a few hours, they might just produce Firth’s Darcy thatch. But chief among their many foibles is their preference for full beard.

Darcy (Colin Firth—still the Regency era’s wet shirt contest champ).
“Casting is perhaps the most important element, apart from the script itself, which was so beautifully written by Andrew Davies,” says director Simon Langton.
In order to extend our knowledge of the characters of Darcy(Colin Firth), and Mr Collins(David Bamber), two scenes are added; to demonstrate that Darcy is not just an effete aristocrat but a real man worthy of Elizabeth's love we are shown him indulging in manly pursuits; fencing, and swimming in his private lake (it puzzles me why so many women seem to drool over his wet-shirt scene); and to demonstrate that Mr Collins is an idiotic, narrow- minded prude we are shown him trembling with embarrassment and horror when he happens to come across Lydia (Julia Sawalha) in a state of dishabille.
David Bamber makes Mr Collins deliciously toadying and obsequious. It is its faithfulness to the original that makes this drama so good.
