I am not so fond of Lucy Robinson as Mrs. Elton. She sounds positively American at times (I suppose this is how Brits try to sound annoying!). And Prunella Scales was too old to play Miss Bates at 63, I thought, although she did a fairly good job of it. Samantha Morton was cute as Harriet Smith.
Overall, another great job of adapting Emma. I will continue to watch all three adaptations as they are all satisfying in a different way. I do love the new 2009 longer miniseries version the best, partly from the casting and partly from the extra length allowing plot development.
Now, we must not have any more Emmas for a while but perhaps instead, try a stab at Mansfield Park by the BBC in a longer miniseries with a real Fanny Price. There’s a thought.
