1 Season Netflix 6 x 60 mins
My mum read me Pride and Prejudice as a child, and since then it’s been a symbol of all things cosy. So this adaptation – the best of the lot, in my opinion - is my ultimate comfort show. The second I hear the shrill tones of Alison Steadman’s Mrs Bennet, I know I’m in for a treat!
Score: 8.9
1 Season Netflix 6 x 45 mins
I love this spiky show which plays around with criminal psychology and true crime, both of which are my guilty pleasures. Plus, I’m very grateful they’ve left it at one, brilliant series, rather than running it into the ground like * cough * other Atwood adaptations…
Score: 8.5
1 Season Amazon Prime 6 x 60 mins
Neil Gaiman is a genius, and I love escaping to the fantastic and slightly mad worlds of his novels. My issue is that when I read his books I cook up a really vivid picture in my mind of what everything should look like, then I’m a bit disappointed when it does eventually come to screen. But there was none of that with this one, which I think nailed both the energy and style of Gaiman’s writing.
Score: 7.8
2 Seasons Now, Sky 17 x 30 mins
This story perfectly portrays the joys and the struggles of two friends who simultaneously love and envy one another, something I think we can all relate to in one way or another. It also makes me incredibly grateful for my best friend and the journey we have been on together. Although, unfortunately ours was in Lincolnshire, rather than sunny Napoli…
Score: 8.0
1 Season BBC iPlayer 6 x 60 mins
The perfect option for people like me who can’t be bothered to wade their way through the 1,225 pages of Tolstoy’s novel. Have you read it? The Beeb do a great job at helping us remember who’s who and what’s what, all the while making everything (and everyone – I’m looking at you Bolkonsky) look very beautiful.
Score: 8.9
