Tonight’s Jane Austen on ABC stars Carey Mulligan, AKA Sally Sparrow, in the role of Isabella Thorpe. There is no TARDIS interaction to be expected though, simply those dimples being roguish.
Lucy Tartan will be having her weekly discussion of Sunday Austen over at Sorrow at Sills Bend (
or at least I imagine that she will, she hasn’t put a post up for this weekend, but I doubt she’d miss it Update: her Northanger post now up here). Sadly I missed last week’s Persuasion because I was watching a Doctor Who marathon on cable (I may have even been watching Blink while Persuasion was on), so I also missed Rupert Penry-Jones (and Anthony Head) in breeches. Bugger.
Bonus Whoverse connection: Felicity Jones, who plays Catherine Morland in NA, also appears in an episode of the upcoming 4th season of the resurrected Doctor Who series, episode entitled The Unicorn and the Wasp. For a different period drama delight, she also appears as Lady Cordelia Flyte in the completed but not yet screened remake of Brideshead Revisited.
