Andrew Davies will probably go down in history as the man who had the epoch-makingly brilliant idea of putting Mr. Darcy into a wet and thus clingily transparent blouse.Laura Carroll
I don't know about anybody else, but I think Mr. Darcy's hot, wet shirt or no. In the A&E Pride and Prejudice mini-series Colin Firth keeps the home fires burning if you know what I mean. He takes cute snobbery to a whole new level. So is that really what started the Austen frenzy of the last decade? Would she be as popular now if not for that particular movie? Does she have Andrew Davies to thank? Do we? Ah, yah..
Here's someone else who thinks so.
