There are some who have great difficulty with the way Andrew Davies handles Jane Austen's novels in his script, but I love him. I think him very talented and always enjoy interviews with him because of the liveliness of his mind...
I've enjoyed Andrew Davies' work on screenplays made from JA novels.
Actually I get a bit weary of the Andrew Davies bashing I so often read on the various boards. The man's 1995 BBC version of P&P (and the male lead of course ) set millions of hearts aflutter. , and it was the very beginning of all these fanfiction sites.
At least he made quite a few literary works accessible to a greater public and actually stimulated people to start reading the books. I admire him, and I'm glad you like him too, Julia.
Happy holidays to you and Mr. wonderful too, dear.
