Sense and Sensibility

Because one can never have enough Jane Austen, she wrote six novels fyi, the BBC has announced a new television adaptation of Sense and Sensibility is in the works. Andrew Davis, writer of the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and who therefore is to blame, comments on charges Austen has been over-adapted for television and film.

"There is a different audience out there apart from 12- to 14-year-old boys and I think a lot of the stories that people like to see now were written in the 19th Century or before. You can mine them again and again. Well, at least I hope that's true, otherwise I'm in trouble."
