once in a while something televisual comes along that makes a lady squeak in delight over her cuppa tea... that thing currently is Lost in Austen!
every good book i've ever read has made me feel like the characters are real people, people who i'd love to get in amongst and live the story along side them, which is exactly what Lost in Austen has done - brilliant!
i have enjoyed 2 epsiodes thus far and cannot bear the wait til Thursday when i can watch Wednesday nights episode (i get up at 4.30am remember!) - the twist that she actually ruins her favourite plotline is also ultra brilliant! it would have been so easy to just have her as a scullery maid or something but replacing the lead character with a modern day millie is so much more fun!
