— But you will be ready to say, what was your hope in doing this? — What did you look forward to? — To any thing, every thing — to time, chance, circumstances, slow effects, sudden bursts, perserverance and weariness ... Every possibility of good was before me, and the first of blessings secured ... — from Emma, by Jane Austen (1775-1817)

Anticipation, mysterious edition



There it was, a glimpse at the end of Death Comes to Pemberley last night, for Grantchester, a new series for Masterpiece Mystery next year based on the Sidney Chambers series by James Runcie. Dishy vicar! (And dishier Robson Green as his friend, Inspector Keating.)

We're really enjoying Grantchester at our house. But it's taken me a couple of episodes to put some space between James Norton's character in Happy Valley (psychopath) and the dishy vicar...yes he is!

Thank you for visiting!
