One thought on “Jane Austen’s Sanditon ‘Sexed-up’ in Andrew Davies Adaptation

  1. critics noted that Davies’s focus on sex and money and Austen’s wry, incisive humour and the “deft” characterisation, prevented the television adaptation from “descending into the realm of a nicely-costumed, brilliantly-photographed melodrama”.
