Lost in Austen: episode four (the final episode!)

This is a brief review of the final episode of Lost in Austen with a (slight) spoiler: I thought the final episode of Lost in Austen (broadcast last night on ITV1) was brilliant! I enjoyed every minute of it and couldn't stop smiling as the very surreal storyline got sillier and sillier. (Spoiler alert) I paricularly enjoyed the clever twists to the story when Darcy followed Amanda to 21st century London and they found Elizabeth who had transformed herself into a very modern nanny. All in all, I think the series was fantastic fun and I loved the ending. All the actors were great, especially Jemima Rooper as Amanda Price, Elliot Cowan as Mr Darcy, and Alex Kingston as Mrs Bennet. If you missed any of this delectable series, you can watch it again via ITV Catch Up. I was delighted when I found out there was a special afterwards (on ITV3) called Lost In Austen... Behind the Scenes. I enjoyed learning the details about how the series was made and watching interviews with the actors and others that worked on it. If you missed seeing this fun special, it's available to watch again via ITV Catch Up. (Please note that ITV Catch Up cannot be accessed from outside the United Kingdom) Read more about the series: Lost in Austen - ITV Drama Lost in Austen: Historic Locations - Check out the stunning locations where Lost in Austen was filmed and feel the history in every scene Edited to add: I posted about the first episode here.
