2010 Masterpiece Classic

I'm very excited about the new year's Masterpiece Classic series. The schedule was recently posted online. It is starting in December this year with a repeat of Cranford and goes directly into Return to Cranford. There are also repeats of Northanger Abbey (quite good) and Persuasion (hideous). There are some interesting selections this year, including The Diary of Anne Frank. I'm most looking forward to Return to Cranford and the new version of Emma (to the left), which will start at the end of January.


  1. Oh yay! I'm glad they're making a new Emma. The one with Gwyneth Paltrow was horrible. It was so... campy. I don't know if that's the right word, it's just the only one that's coming to my addled and exhausted pregnant brain. Did you watch the Masterpiece Contemporary? I thought it was pretty good.

  2. Emma is my least favorite Austen, but this new adaptation looks really good. I did watch Place of Execution and liked it. Haven't watched the car crash series yet.

  3. Was the Place of Execution about the guy who crippled the rich guy's daughter? If so, I saw that. I did watch the one about the car accident. They were both pretty good.
