The better half loved the book and she's an Austen Nazi and was all set to tear it asunder.

That bodes well, then.

Unless, of course, they make a complete pig's ear of the adaptation.

BBC tend to get the period stuff correct.

Except, apparently, The White Queen, where the sheets look like they've had a run-in with Persil, ditto the teeth, and you can quite clearly see zips in the clothing!!

Didn't have a peaky at it at all. Heard it described as Game of Thrones for women but without Tyrion Lannister ie the wit and humour.

Surely Game of Thrones is Games of Thrones for women? :?

That's what I thought but sometimes these reviewers are a bit dim.

Aah. We're already not allowed Yorkies, no Game of Thrones would be going to far!
