BBC4 is screening a new version of Fanny Hill; adaptation by – well, who else could it be? – Andrew Davies.

    I read the novel a few weeks ago, so am quite looking forward to the TV adaptation. It will be interesting to see how many times Davies has chosen to violate the ‘Mull of Kintyre rule’: an authentic adaptation would have to do so very frequently indeed, thus becoming the most sexually explicit thing shown on British television. Mary Whitehouse would be appalled!
