(I still have space for more topics if anyone hasn't left me one yet! The original post is here should you wish to.)

[profile] ramasi requested: Book-to-movie (or tv) adaptations you like? (Or didn't like, if you feel like ranting).

My first thought was that this was a very nice question, the second that this could be a very long post if I'm not careful. So I made myself choose 5 favourites, setting myself a rough guideline for inclusion - something along the lines of "it needs to be something I've watched at least twice and should be where I read the book first". (And then promptly broke that rule with my first choice, as you do.) (The pics in this post, btw, are my screencaps, excepting those for the first two, which I stole from Google.)

Written in the crossover meme for [livejournal.com profile] clocketpatch, who requested Ten and Mr Darcy. I'm sorry, this is very daft (and yet not quite daft enough), but it's the one scene that I had in my head. I nearly complied with all the meme's rules this time, except I had to sneak in Lizzy at the end. How can you not?

For [livejournal.com profile] infinitejoys, who gave me the rather wonderful prompt of Turlough/Charlotte Lucas.

And I begin to realise that I fail at the 'no background whatsover, just a conversation for fun' bit of this meme, but I am having fun.   And, amazingly, this is the first Doctor Who story.

Of course, it's not only the Simm Master who likes to tell stories at the creche.  All sorts of characters have been roped in, either by Izzy, or trying to carry out some evil plot.

Barbara - Izzy asks the most sensible person she can think of to tell the children a classic story.  She was thinking Winnie-the-Pooh, but Barbara tried Pride and Prejudice.

(Please note I wasn't clear about which chapters should get archived, so I'll have to link to each part separately, otherwise Part 1 doesn't have the obvious joke.  It still should be better, though).

Part Four:

Part Five:

With sincere apologies to both the Brigadier and Jane Austen.
