Hello, hello again! So this morning I am taking a break from reviews and such to share a new casting bit and some exciting news regarding the ITV series The Bletchley Circle. Thanks to it being picked up by ITV this past spring, it has earned a second series pick up. This leaves me really excited to say the least – and according to Digital Spy, also joining the cast will be Hattie Morahan, whom we all may remember from the delightful 2008 version of Sense and Sensibility.
Also in the news of British casting scoops is finally more about Death Comes to Pemberley – the newly commissioned BBC serial we discussed way back in February. Cast as (according to Zap2It and other sources) Mr. Wickham is Matthew Goode and playing the esteemed Mr. Darcy himself will be Matthew Rhys. Let’s have a closer look.
CASTING SCOOP: ALL THINGS BRITISH!
Excuse me while I try to process this potentially horrible miscast for a moment…
Hello, creepy what’s-his-name villain in The Mystery of Edwin Drood.Casting Scoop: All Things British! #FWarchives Click To Tweet
Hello, better-looking version of said villain.
Okay, I am back.
Also joining the cast of ‘Pemberly’ will be Anna Maxwell Martin as Elizabeth and much as I like her… I am unsure of her being a “good” choice also. If nothing else, I know she’ll turn in a magnificent performance as she is a talented actress.
Set to make a late 2013 debut, Death Comes to Pemberley will mark a 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Your turn! Anyone with thoughts, please do chime in. As always, I’d love to read them.
