Last night was an unexpected treat...I switched on BBC Four and guess---my favourite costume drama was on!
Elizabeth Gaskell's Wives and Daughters. Yum.
I already have it on video and dvd. But having it on TV for ready consumption meant I could just dip in and enjoy. And how...big sigh.
The story features my favourite line ever---he once rode seven miles to bring me a wasps nest.
Molly Gibson is my favourite heroine too. And Roger Science Nerd Hambly is just right for her.
There are too many ways to tell you how much I love this story so instead I'll just say---watch it. Enjoy. I do love it---even if it even makes me somehow feel cheated my beloved choses continental chocs over wasps nests.
