The best Northanger Abbey adaptation so far,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Northanger Abbey [DVD]  (DVD)
I think this is a thoroughly enjoyable adaptation - very much better than the previous version with Peter Firth. It was excellently acted all round (J.J. Feild deserves a special mention as Henry Tilney) lovely settings, and it had pace, humour and a real feel for Jane Austen's book. Andrew Davies (as usual) added a few sexy undercurrants but they were not offensive and were mostly in dream sequences. Don't hesitate to buy.

Did people read the same book as I did, this is Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen? Henry Tilney was completely out of place, dull as dishwater and looked more like the footman.

Henry Tilney is not supposed to be terribly goodlooking. And I disgree, he was not dull.

JJ Field is the most beautiful man on the planet and so fitted the part!

If you love him so much Karen, do spell his unusual surname right. It`s Feild, from old English family, apparently.
