Out of the Mouths of Babes – Pride & Prejudice


I love this Jane Austen book – it was the first I read and well it does the soul good to sit through 6 hours of the BBC’s adaptation of Pride & Prejudice – cue an excuse for a picture of Colin Firth as Mr Darcy 😉"and your parents? are they in good health?"

SC first saw chunks of this about 2 years ago and now, every time it’s on (fairly regularly it would appear on the Drama Channel) he loves sitting and watching it with me. He does a very good impression of Lizzie saying “Mr Darcy!” – which cracks me up no end 😉

Anyway I thought you might like SC’s take on the cast list:

Mr Wickham – Boo! Hiss! Pantomime villain.

Lady Catherine de Bourgh – “she’s a mean old lady mummy!”

Mr Collins – “he’s quite nice, but a bit annoying.”

Mrs Bennett – “mmm, she’s OK, but I wouldn’t want her as a mummy.”

Lizzie Bennett – “she’s lovely. Just like you mummy.”

Mr Darcy -“oh, he’s very nice. I wish he was real mummy, so that you could have a happy ending, just like Lizzie.” (Lord, love him 😉 )
