“I would prefer it if I did not enjoy oranges. Consuming them is a most incommodious business.” Cranford (2007)
Were I informed that Mr. Bingley (Simon Woods) would be playing a major role in the third of BBC’s adaptations of Elizabeth Gaskell’s novels, I’d have watched this much, much sooner! North & South was all good and well and Wives & Daughters seemed to drag on, but I’m LOVING Cranford. It’s at once both hilarious and much less conducive to the slightly clausterphobic feeling I got from watching the first two.
