Sense & Sensibility (2008) David Morrissey and Janet McTeer star in this stylish and romantic BBC adaptation portraying the story of the spirited Dashwood sisters. Emma (2009) with a stellar cast, this fresh, funny, and perceptive BBC adaptation brings this comic masterpiece about village life, love and self awareness to life.

In ITV's Persuasion (2007), we have Anne Elliott (Sally Hawkins) regretting her rejection of Captain Wentworth (Rupert Penry-Jones) many years before due to family pressure, a brilliant production of this heart-felt romance.
