Ah, there is bliss in a good novel adaptation.
South Riding is to be adapted by the BBC and the cast looks AWESOME.
Anna Maxwell Martin as Sarah Burton!
David Morrissey as Robert Carne!
AND Douglas Henshall as Joe Astell, the "Riding's only socialist councillor and rival to Carne for Sarah's affections" (as the BBC Press release describes him).
I have fondly read South Riding, and will look forward to doing so again.
Oh, and the person adapting this classic text?
Why 'tis Andrew Davies of course!
