Austenitis strikes again

Word is that ITV is going to try to boost its ratings with some Jane Austen. Mansfield Park (why is it that I can never bring myself to like that book?), Persuasion (a personal Austen favourite) and the Gothic novel spoof Northanger Abbey (silly, but I’m fond of it). They’ve called in – who else? – Andrew Davies.

I do wonder how the Grand Master of Costume Drama plans to pull off Northanger Abbey given that it’s so centred on the inner workings of the heroine’s over-fertile brain?
