    • The best novel adaptation I have ever seen. No need to re-make Pride and Prejudice, people! The BBC version cannot be bested! It captures the heart and soul of the book perfectly and is a must-watch for all.moreless

      I remember watching this when it was on TV for the first time and I remembered it all so clearly, I could hum the theme tune for years afterwards! This is a perfect adaptation. As a great fan of the book (as most people who have read it are) I remember watching the show unfold exactly as I had imagined it myself, in isolation, with the book. The acting is superb and everything about the show captures the essence of the book without fault: the clothes, sets, landscapes etc. I think that it had the ability to be so good because it doesn't leave anything out; it lets the book dictate the pace and develops each of the characters' stories with great care and attention. It does not seem rushed but it also doesn't plod, mainly because of the colourful characters and the very good acting and on screen chemistry. It is actually this reason that I think it is hard to compare this production to any film versions of P&P because I can't bear to think of the ruthlessness with which half the charm of the book must be cut away to leave just 120 mins of condensed story. To me, you need the 'normal' everyday stuff to enhance the story and to help develop our understanding of the characters and the social world they live in.

      Another interesting point that impresses me is that in the book, there are a lot of conversations that are described rather than having the dialogue explicitly written by Austen. In this way, she can convey the frequency and the subjects of everyday conversations without boring the reader by writing them in full. In the BBC version, conversations such as these are written in specifically for the show and you absolutely wouldn't know they weren't out of the book word-for-word. I can't find anything to criticise in this production. It was put together with a real affection towards the book and I feel that very strongly throughout. I need never watch another version as this one -for me- has hit every nail on the head perfectly.moreless
    • An awe-inspiring portrayal of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice"

      After several failed attempts at finding an accurate on-screen portrayal of Austen's classic literary romance, I was excited to find one I actually enjoyed.

      The casting here was fabulous, and the characterization didn't miss a beat. Aside from the irreplaceable chemistry between lead roles Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, the mannorisms of supporting characters such as Mr. and Mrs. Bennett were spot on and very true to the actual novel. Viewers will be pleased with the superior settings, script, and acting in this mini-series. There was very little dramatization, so the simplistic romance Austen was attempting to create between two unlikely people really shines here. Overall, I think this adaptation of Austen's book did most justice to the characters and time period being depicted. A true must-see.moreless
    • When Andrew Davies decided to make a mini series from Jane Austen novel "Pride and Prejudice", he turned out the best adaptation of the book which has ever been done.

      Jane Austen's most famous novel has been filmed several times, but no adaptation comes even remotely close to the perfection of this one. Andrew Davies and his team put together a superbly talented cast, a magnificent screenplay and some amazing scenery to produce a piece of television which can be watched over and over again without it ever losing its gloss.

      Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle are superb as Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth, while others, such as Alison Steadman, Barbara Leigh-Hunt, Sasannah Harker, Crispin Bonham-Carter and David Bamber, just to name a few deliver performances which are so memorable, it is as though Jane Austen herself wrote, cast and directed the production.

      Accept no substitutes, this is as good as it gets!moreless
    • The best dramatization of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" so far and one of the best novel adaptations I`ve seen.

      This 1995 BBC`s version of "Pride and Prejudice" is simply that - the BEST. And the best not only in a category of Austen's adaptations, but as the best novel adaptation in general. In this mini series, based on a well-known Jane Austen's master piece of the same title, one gets an unforgettable experience told so well that you hardly can get enough of it.

      The entire cast is simply fabulous. And no doubt here that Collin Firth created the best Mr Darcy to date IMO. And the script writers as well did justice to the original story so well that you get all the thrill, suspense and excitement you get from the original novel.moreless
