Lost in Austen coming to TV Sunday night

Just when you thought our love affair with Jane Austen was all over along comes this TV gem. On Sunday (8th March and 15th) at 8.30pm be watching ABC TV for Lost in Austen. Jemima Rooper (The Black Dahlia) plays a young woman who finds herself swept away to the land of Austen's Pride and Prejudice. It also features Alex Kingston (ER), Hugh Bonneville (Notting Hill), Lindsay Duncan (Rome) and new Bond girl Gemma Arterton (St. Trinians; Quantum Of Solace). It is the story of a thoroughly modern heroine who threatens to ruin one of the world's greatest literary love stories. Bored bank worker Amanda Price becomes lost in her favourite Jane Austen book after finding a portal in her bathroom and swaps places with its heroine Elizabeth Bennet. Of course she encounters the Bennet family and Mr Darcy. As the plot thickens she must restore the love story to its rightful conclusion. There are some wonderful locations and great characters. At least it sounds more tasteful than this new title: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance – Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! by Seth Graheme-Smith.
