2007 Archive - News and Updates

26 December 2007

Sorry about the lack of updates over the last two months. There's just been no Felicity-shaped news!

Some of the UK movie magazines are starting to cover Flashbacks of a Fool, the upcoming Daniel Craig movie that Felicity is supposed to be in, so keep your eyes open for coverage on that.

And Doctor Who fans should also stay alert for Felicity as she's reported to be in the next series.

In the meantime here's a new affiliate, The Treadaway Tribute!

A big thanks to everyone who contributed to the page in 2007. I've had a lot of fun doing it. Here's to a Felicity-shaped 2008.


16 October 2007

News of Felicity's next role appeared yesterday on www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice BBC Drama has commissioned a new adaptation of The Diary Of Anne Frank. It will be shown in five episodes on consecutive nights early next year. Felicity will play Anne's sister Margot Frank.

Thanks to Enrique for creating these two new wallapers of Fliss.


8 September 2007

Another burst of Felicity for you! This time it's the article from the February issue of Vogue magazine covering the "most hotly anticipated TV offering since Lost" and the "TV event of the year". Yes, you guessed it, Cape Wrath! Well, at least there's a nice photo of Felicity...

Speaking of Cape Wrath, I entered a competition for the DVD on Monday and I won! It arrived today. Many thanks to the nice competition people!

Suzette over at Matthew Goode sent me the following links to some behind the scenes photos from Brideshead Revisited that are worth a look.

Here's a lovely find. Felicity appears in an eight page article in the October 2007 issue of InStyle UK magazine. It's just gone on sale so run out and buy a copy now!

3 September 2007

Anna found this Felicity-flavoured article called "UK Stars Of Tomorrow 2007: The Actors". Lovely little photo of Felicity, isn't it?

FELICITY JONES

Her rich tones are already familiar to millions, thanks to her recurring role in popular BBC radio serial The Archers, and now Felicity Jones is proving her versatility and making a mark on stage and screen. She enjoyed glowing reviews for two recent performances - in That Face at London's Royal Court, holding her own opposite stage veteran Lindsay Duncan and fellow Star Of Tomorrow Matt Smith, and playing the lead in UK broadcaster ITV's Northanger Abbey.

Jones is now on the small screen in the US and the UK, in the dark Channel 4/Showtime series Cape Wrath (aka Meadowlands). Her most high-profile project to date is Julian Jarrold's hotly anticipated Brideshead Revisited, playing Cordelia Flyte opposite Matthew Goode, Ben Whishaw, Hayley Atwell, Emma Thompson and Michael Gambon.

1 September 2007

Cape Wrath came out on DVD in the UK on Monday. The box says there are three disks. I'll be holding off on buying it until I see it much reduced in a sale!

Meanwhile, the Stage has a story with the (not unexpected) news that Cape Wrath will not get a second series.

So it’s bad news for Cape Wrath fans looking for any answers as to what Meadowlands really is... A source at Channel 4 tells me it won’t be returning for a second series. She said the show had been seen as something as an “experiment” for the broadcaster, but added audiences had not been as good as they had hoped they would be for the Ecosse production, meaning all the loose ends will have to remain untied for now.

It seems viewers weren’t enticed by the half British, half American show, which had a whiff of Twin Peaks about it and which tried its hardest to be as weird as possible. The actors did a good job too — notably Lucy Cohu as Evelyn.

23 August 2007

What's next for our Felicity? Alan has been in touch to let me know...

Don't know if you have heard or not, but Felicity has been cast in an as yet unknown role in the fourth series of Doctor Who for the BBC, It reveals in the latest Doctor Who Magazine, so might be worth a brief mention on your site?

For those of you outside the UK, Doctor Who was a science fiction series that ran from 1963-1989. It was brought back by the BBC in 2005 and has been a great success. This will be a quite high profile part for Felicity.

Some off-topic trivia: Felicity's co-star from Northanger Abbey, Carey Mulligan starred in the best episode (IMHO) from series 3 of Doctor Who. It was called Blink and was was one of the best episodes of any TV show I have ever seen. If you get a chance to watch it you should do so.

Big thanks to Alan for the news!


11 August 2007

I've just realised that I never posted my thoughts on the last two episodes of Cape Wrath. Well... The best I can say is that they were ok. I didn't feel the need to check out what was happening on another channel, but very little actually happened in them.

The final "reveal" of where Meadowlands was located was not a complete surprise. I was expecting something like that to happen, but it was still fun to see.

Here and there the story showed some dramatic potential, for example when the Brogan family sat down to discuss leaving. Another fault of the series, I think, was to resist "mixing up" the cast. Each character only got to interact with the same two or three other characters. At one point Wintersgill turned up in the Brogan's kitchen to talk to Zoe and Mark and I thought, "well that's interesting. Why don't they do more of that?"

Any time Felicity was on screen the quality of the program went up a notch or three. Yes, I know I'm biased, but it's still true!

Here's an excerpt from an article on www.thestage.co.uk that hints at a second series:

Are you one of Cape Wrath’s loyal viewers? There aren’t too many of us left. Thankfully, last Tuesday’s Channel 4 episode didn’t see any further drop in ratings, although that’s not saying much — just 800,000 people viewed episode 5 (a 5% share). That’s the same as the week before, although it’s half the number that tuned in for the series premiere.

While those of us watching on terrestrial will find out the fate (or otherwise) of the Meadowlands residents, executive producer Douglas Rae of production company Ecosse Films and his team will be finding out if a second series will be going ahead.

6 August 2007

No news as such. I'm just trying out a new "clean" look to the page. Like it? Hate it? Let me know!

The final two episodes of Cape Wrath will be shown tomorrow night on E4 in the UK. Despite my mixed feelings on the show I'm sure I will be suffering Felicity-withdrawal symptoms.

Agnieszka over on www.treadawaybrothers.com reports that there will NOT be a second series of Cape Wrath. Feel free to either cry or rejoice as appropriate.

=pause for thought=

You mean we have to wait a whole year for Brideshead Revisited?


2 August 2007

Digital Spy has a story called 'Cape Wrath' ratings dive for Channel 4. That must be episode 4 they are talking about. The one that I liked! Meanwhile over on E5 episode 5 was quite good. There was not as much Felicity going on I'm afraid, but there was a peek at what Meadowlands was actually created for. By the way, the Digital Spy story above says that the last episode will be double length.


25 July 2007

Last night Cape Wrath episode 4 was on E4 and it was the best one so far. In fact I would go as far as saying I think I actually enjoyed it!

It helped that it was Felicity's episode. She was in it the whole way through. And her character is one of the more interesting ones. She's very "takes-no-nonsense".

It also helped that there was also a lot less of the unpleasant things going on.

And then the epsiode ended on a very intriguing note that suggests there is a lot more behind the existence of the town that the viewer hasn't been told about.

All of a sudden I'm actually looking forward to the next epsiode.


19 July 2007

My verdict on Cape Wrath, episode 3?

I have to say I enjoyed episode 3 a little bit more than the first two episodes. Felicity had a larger part and it seems to be a different storyline from the one the rest of the characters are enduring. I did really enjoy watching her bits, which came to about 10 minutes. The rest of the thing wasn't that special.

Felicity was great. If I didn't already like her I would like her after seeing her in that episode.

Agnieszka let me know that there's an interview with Felicity at www.channel4.com.

There's an article about the Brideshead Revisited shoot at www.thisisyork.co.uk


12 July 2007

Here are some reviews of Cape Wrath: entertainment.timesonline.co.uk, www.telegraph.co.uk, www.thestage.co.uk and arts.guardian.co.uk

My own feelings on it are mixed. It held my interest, but by the end of the first two episodes I don't know that I actually enjoyed the thing! I will keep watching as I thought Felicity was outstanding as Zoe. Hopefully her part will get more screen time in future episodes.


10 July 2007

Here is a scan of a little piece that today's Radio Times magazine did on Felicity.

Here are some more Cape Wrath links. The last one appears to contain clips of the show.

Don't forget the first episode is on Channel 4 tonight and the second episode follows on E4.


8 July 2007

Here's a couple more articles about Cape Wrath...


7 July 2007

The Times has an article on Cape Wrath in their Saturday "Knowledge" TV guide. Here's a bit:

The real scene-stealers are the younger cast. Tom Hardy plays Jack Donnelly, a brooding, inarticulatebut sexually charismatic young handy-man who enjoys women’s fear. This cross between Lady Chatterley’s Mellors and a psychotic hoodie is challenged by Brogan’s fearless daughter Zoe, played by Felicity Jones. Oxford-educated, pretty and provocative, looking and playing about six years younger than her real age, she may be familiar from The Worst Witch or Servants. But for Radio 4 listeners, her real claim to fame is as Emma Grundy in The Archers, though you won’t catch a trace of Borsetshire here.

Source: entertainment.timesonline.co.uk

The Telegraph also has a Cape Wrath article:

Played by Felicity Jones, the Brogans’ daughter Zoë is the family member who’s happiest to embrace the deception. “Zoë actively enjoys this new existence,” says Jones, “and she’s slightly less worried than her parents about revealing herself.” Inevitably, however, that trait makes for some awkward moments in the show’s opener. “She’s willing to make the best of it,” continues Jones, “and so this terrible [inner] weakness is constantly being replaced by a faux confidence.” Trying to be a friendly, sassy teenager, Zoë befriends Jack, the estate’s gardener (played by Tom Hardy). She uses her beauty to gain the confidence of the rough labourer, but learns soon enough that Jack’s brutishness is deeper than mere bravado.

1 July 2007

Agnieszka has let me know that there is a Cape Wrath page at www.channel4.com. It includes a gallery of the ususal promotional shots. I think the series had been advertised on Channel 4 this week but I seem to be mising the ads!

Josef sent in some videos and preview images from Northanger Abbey. You can find them in this thread on the message board.


28 June 2007

Agnieszka sent me this piece where Felicity talks about her character in Meadowlands:

"I think I probably am like Zoe Brogan in some ways," muses actress Felicity Jones. "She's incredibly sharp and quick-witted, has a smart sassy view on life and doesn't suffer fools gladly. Zoe has a wonderful independence about her. She hasn't necessarily had the love and affection from her parents that she wanted or felt she deserved and that has given her a defensive streak. And she's looking to find her place in the world."

27 June 2007

Enrique found a Felicity gallery at www.photoshot.com. There are three pages of thumbnails but they are "watermarked". I assume they can be purchased without the watermark.

The July 2007 issue of TVZone has an article about Cape Wrath. I'll probably get around to scanning it eventually. The images are pretty much the same promotional images I've seen elsewhere and there's no new Felicity.

Cape Wrath will hopefully get a few articles in next week's TV guides in the UK so keep your eyes open.

Enrique found a couple of Felicity/Meadowlands links. The first lets you get her character's "look"!

19 June 2007

This Telegraph article about David Morrissey tells us that Cape Wrath starts on Channel 4 on July 10.

www.buddytv.com has an article called Showtime's Meadowlands: Meet the Cast.

And here's another review!

And now comes "Meadowlands," which has an odd and macabre moodiness that makes the show a real challenge to watch. But it's also has a charm and complexity that is difficult to resist.

18 June 2007

Enrique found this image from the Daily Mail. It seems to be from a couple of years ago and is about The Archers.

Enrique also sent me a link on yahoo where they have the complete first episode and some clips of Meadowlands. Click on tv.yahoo.com/meadowlands to find out more.

Now... Yet more reviews of Meadowlands!

You might say that Showtime’s mesmerizingly warped new drama series Meadowlands - which makes its debut at 10 p.m. today - is a sort of modern-day everyday version of The Prisoner crossed with Twin Peaks.

www.journalnow.com

the show is very quirky & dark - something we'd never see on regular network television - it totally has a slight david lynch feel to the whole thing!

popbytes.com

The first season runs just eight episodes and concludes with a big revelation about Meadowlands, but I have to wonder if many viewers will stick with it that long. The show features some larger-than-life characters whose psychological pathology could be interesting to learn, and Treadaway's performance as a Jack White-coifed emo-boy is oddball-cool, but "Meadowlands" demands too much of a slog for too little in return.

www.post-gazette.com

17 June 2007

Even more articles about Meadowlands for you. Remember, USA people can watch it tonight!

Gorgeous scenery, spot-on acting (in particular Felicity Jones as aggressive/vulnerable teen Zoe), intriguing if not puzzling plot lines.

seattletimes.nwsource.com

The picturesque Meadowlands is crime-free, that is, if you don't take into consideration the backgrounds of the residents.

www.zap2it.com

As characters come to divine that this paradise is just another exotically designed prison, however, it takes on elements of the classic '60s program "The Prisoner." Further revelations will suggest to viewers "Weeds," "The Ice Storm," "Twin Peaks" and any other anomie-drenched popular entertainment.

www.dailybulletin.com

Daughter Zoe (an impressive Felicity Jones) is a chatty brain who looks at the move as a way to become a boy-crazed tart instead of the bookworm she once was and Jack the maintenance man (Tom Hardy) is all too willing to help. Zoe also serves as the interpreter for her tragically shy twin brother Mark (Harry Treadaway), a highly functioning autistic who hasn't talked in months. Instead, he and Zoe communicate telepathically.

www.detnews.com

"Meadowlands" may not be an original, but it's still, as Showtime promises, "dark, unpredictable and mysterious." Telling more would spoil some early revelations, but potential viewers do need to know that the sexual content is extreme, as is at least one burst of violence.

www.stltoday.com

But make no mistake, Meadowlands in no dark comedy or campy hoot. It's an attention-grabbing psychological thriller teeming with a host of well-drawn characters you'll want to get to know better.

www.palmbeachpost.com

After watching four hourlong episodes, I wasn't much closer to discovering why the Brogans were on the lam, but I found them so creepy and their neighbors so sadistic, pathetic or annoyingly cryptic that I didn't really care. Fans of Showtime's equally dark "Dexter," however, may be intrigued.

www.jsonline.com

16 June 2007

Three more reviews of Meadowlands for you...

It's always hard when you watch a new series and find yourself WANTING to like it rather than, you know, actually liking it.

www.film.com

It takes a village to put this much strangeness in one place, and what "Meadowlands" does with it is refreshingly original and addictive. You'll care about these people almost instantly, even if they're never to be trusted, or believed.

www.thenewstribune.com

...but there are lots more questions after that, as you follow the offbeat Brogans settling into their equally offbeat community - and trying to preserve the secrets that sent them there.

www.hometownannapolis.com

15 June 2007

Lots of reviews of Meadowlands for you...

You might say that Showtime's mesmerizingly warped new drama series "Meadowlands" is a sort of modern-day everyday version of "The Prisoner" crossed with "Twin Peaks."

www.newsday.com

...that doesn't mean "Meadowlands" isn't enjoyable; it's not gloomy, it's just dark. It also has the potential to be Showtime's most addictive summer series. Relentlessly odd as "Meadowlands" can be, don't be surprised if it seduces you.

seattlepi.nwsource.com

It's titillating and dark, this strange new thriller from Showtime. The eight-part mystery, made in Britain, begins with the blindfolded arrival of a family of four to their new home in Meadowlands.

www.theglobeandmail.com

Sounds like a pretty exciting premise, doesn’t it? All the right ingredients are there, but “Meadowlands” makes a near-fatal mistake - it’s needlessly mysterious and bizarre.

theedge.bostonherald.com

The concept of this eight-part series, premiering Sunday night, is better than the execution.

www.rockymountainnews.com

Billed as an eight-episode series, it offers up some seriously - and not so seriously - disturbed characters, some even worth getting to know.

www.philly.com

In writing the eight-episode thriller, The Prisoner came up as a reference, as did Twin Peaks, says co-executive producer Caroline Levy. The look is influenced by American Beauty, Far From Heaven and photographer Gregory Crewdson's surreal small towns.

www.usatoday.com

Based on the number of similar shows I've referenced (without even getting into the classic The Prisoner), you may think Meadowlands is pretty derivative, but there's an intriguing sense that it's trying to find its own voice.

Amazon UK have added a cover image of the Cape Wrath DVD. Note that it says "The Complete Series One". That sort of implies a "Series Two", doesn't it?

Big thanks to Andrea for sending me these two stories.

Firstly, according to www.variety.com Felicity is in the cast of a movie called Flashbacks of a Fool.

Secondly, yesterday's Mail on Sunday newspaper printed a story about Felicity appearing in the new version of Brideshead Revisited. It includes a lovely new photo of Felicity.

Here's the story...

Archers' Emma Grundy lands role in £30m BBC remake of Brideshead

It's quite a leap upmarket from the day-to-day hurly-burly of life in The Archers.

But Felicity Jones, familiar to millions of Radio 4 listeners as the voice of wild child Emma Grundy, has landed a key role in the BBC's £30million remake of Brideshead Revisited.

Felicity, 23, will play Lady Cordelia Flyte - youngest sister of the infamous Sebastian, and a pious and tormented character who becomes a nurse, dedicating her life to relieving the suffering of others.

Following in the footsteps of the iconic 1981 TV adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s classic novel – which starred Anthony Andrews, Jeremy Irons, and Phoebe Nicholls as Cordelia – will be a huge task, but Felicity is sure the new feature-length film will rise to the challenge.

"The series was wonderful because it almost transcribed the book, minute by minute in detail, whereas the film will have a higher intensity," said Felicity.

"It's going to be very different because you have got such a short amount of time, and so you can only drive one story. The focus is different."

The film – which started shooting in Castle Howard, North Yorkshire, last week and is set to be released in 2008 – stars Ben Whishaw as Sebastian and Matthew Goode as Charles.

Emma Thompson plays the family matriarch Lady Marchmain and Michael Gambon the old rogue Lord Marchmain.

Felicity, who grew up in Birmingham before moving to London, said of her role: "It's beautiful – Cordelia is absolutely insane. She's a very sprightly young girl who is very different from anyone else I have played. And we wear lovely costumes as it covers the period of 1925 to 1935."

Felicity was inspired to become an actress by her uncle, theatre actor Michael Hadley. She said: "As children we performed plays with my cousins, my parents and grandparents, and so there had always been a sense of drama in the family."

Since leaving Oxford last year, the work has been rolling in.

She has recently played the leading role of Catherine Morland in ITV’s Northanger Abbey and next month will star in Channel 4’s new seven-part drama Cape Wrath.

And, of course, she continues to be the voice of Emma Grundy in The Archers, a part she has no intention of giving up.

Source: www.dailymail.co.uk

So, now we know that Felicity is playing Lady Cordelia Flyte. Having not read the book or seen the old version can anyone tell me if this is a big part? :))


9 June 2007

Okay, this is complete news to me. According to an article at www.4rfv.co.uk Felicity is in the cast of the new film version of Brideshead Revisited. No mention of what character she plays.

There is another review of Meadowlands at blogcritics.org.

Agnieszka also tells me that US-based people can see the official showtime site at www.sho.com. The rest of us can't.


30 May 2007

Here's some info about Meadowlands from www.newswire.ca.

This eight-part thriller explores the nature of memory and identity by asking the question: can anyone ever really wipe the slate clean? Trying to hide from a troubled past, Danny Brogan (David Morrissey) and his family are placed in a witness protection program. He hopes the fresh start will heal their strained family relationships, particularly his failing marriage with his wife Evelyn (Lucy Cohu). Meanwhile, their 17-year-old twins Zoe (Felicity Jones) and Mark (Harry Treadaway) remain traumatized by what they have experienced in their old lives. Mark has not spoken in four months and Zoe channels her fear into a fascination with finding out all her neighbours' dark secrets.

Upon first glance, Meadowlands is a picturesque, crime-free paradise. But a deeper look reveals a world that is becoming increasingly dysfunctional and devoid of normalcy. Darkness begins to seep in as Danny discovers that he and his neighbours are exactly alike - everyone around them has seen something, said something or done something so terrible that they have been removed from the outside world and placed off the radar in a heaven that quickly becomes hell. Now, they have been given a fresh start - solidly built on a foundation of lies.

21 April 2007

Big thanks to Enrique for finding this. It's all news to me! It turns out that Felicity made a short film a few years ago...

HEARING THINGS (2004)

Mari-Ann spends her days working on an assembly line in a factory. Talking to herself in her head, she recites poetry to keep herself sharp during the mundane work days. The other workers leave her alone in her isolated world until a young summer intern, Maddy (Felicity Jones), reaches out to her, only to discover the mysterious cause of her isolation. Hearing Things is a kind film about friendship and finding the courage to rejoin the world.

Written and Directed by Claire Ingham. 14 minutes, in English

Claire's film, 'Hearing Things', won the 'Spirit of Moondance Award' for best narrative short film by a female filmmaker at the Moondance Festival in Hollywood in 2006

Agnieszka sent me two photos of Felicity in Cape Wrath plus a link to her www.treadawaybrothers.com website.

Agnieszka also sent me a link to www.ecossefilms.com which contains this "blurb":

On the run from their past, Danny and Evelyn Brogan move their family to Meadowlands, where they appear to have landed on their feet in a 21st century 'surburban paradise'. Disease, drug and crime-free, Meadowlands appears to be a town where all is safe - bubble wrapped against the slings and arrows of urban life.

However, the more the family begin to find out about their surroundings, the less they understand and the greater the paranoia becomes.

Enrique sent me two photos of felicity in The Archers. All the new photos can be found in the Photo Gallery (logically enough).

Enrique also sent me a link to Felicity at www.isismagazine.org.uk

Finally it appears that felicity was in the February issue of Vogue UK. If anyone has a copy to scan that would be very nice!


2 April 2007

Yesterday I discovered a "making-of" program about the Jane Austen season on ITV3. Felicity featured in it and it had the usual behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew. If you missed it you have another chance to see it when it is repeated on Wednesday, 4 April at 9pm.


31 March 2007

I meant to add these links during the week. Here's the Telegraph and Times reviews of Northanger Abbey.


26 March 2007

I was quite impressed with last night's Northanger Abbey. It was a lot more enjoyable than the previous week's Mansfield Park at any rate. And I was very impressed with Felicity. I suspect I shall be buying the DVD sooner than expected...

Three more scans in the Photo Gallery for you. Two from yesterday's papers and one from today. I missed out on a one-page article in the Sunday Express magazine so if anyone can produce a scan for me that would be good of you! Plus I'm still looking for the ES mag.


25 March 2007

Enrique from Mexico send in these two links. There is a Northanger Abbey article and gallery at www.a2mediagroup.com. And there is a Japanese site with some pics of Felicity in The Worst Witch at rachael.hp.infoseek.co.jp.

Don't forget that Northanger Abbey is on TV tonight and the DVD is out tomorrow. During next week I will scan the other newspaper articles that I have been able to find.


24 March 2007

There was a four page article about Felicity in yesterday's ES magazine (that comes with the Evening Standard newspaper in London). I don't live in london so obviously I missed it. If anyone doesn't want their copy I will give it a good home! Failing that could anyone provide scans?

I bought a few cheap TV guides today. I'll scan the relevant Felicity content over the weekend.

Update!

I've been busy scanning. There are nine new photos and you can find them on the new dedicated Photo Gallery page. Four are from today's newspapers and the other five were found in some TV guides from the cheaper end of the market!


22 March 2007

Here's a bunch of links for you to follow. There's a long interview at www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk. The article includes the following line which is worth repeating here: "Following Northanger Abbey, Felicity went on to film new Channel 4 drama Cape Wrath alongside David Morrissey, and is now preparing to appear in the play That Face at the Royal Court Theatre." Cape Wrath is news to me so I get to update the TV list!

There's also a shorter article at www.metro.co.uk but it seems to include the same quotes such as this comment on public recognition: "I use public transport too much. At the moment, I don't get recognised, especially living in London. Perhaps I'll change my hair so that no one will recognise me." And on not watching it on Sunday night: "I'll be cringing." My guess is that the writers either were at the same press conference or used the same press notes.

Simon sent in links to another article that mentions Cape Wrath at icbirmingham.icnetwork.co.uk and a pdf document at www.janeausten.co.uk.

The image of Felicity found at that last link is so nice I just had to steal it for the page!

There, I told you it was nice!


21 March 2007

I've scanned in the Felicty content from the new Radio Times. You can find the pics in the photos area. Don't forget that Northanger Abbey is on ITV next Sunday night.


19 March 2007

There's a typically sensational story at www.thesun.co.uk today: "ACTRESS Felicity Jones will bathe naked in a FIELD in a steamy new Jane Austen TV drama." I hesitate to provide a link but there is a very nice photo of Felicity along with the 'story'. (No, she's not naked in the photo!)


18 March 2007

Felicity will be appearing in a play called That Face at the Royal Court Theater from 20 April - 19 May. There is more info at www.huliq.com.


17 March 2007

Just a couple of things. Firstly, there is a longer interview with Felicity on the Radio Times site. Secondly, I found a little picture of Felicity from Servants so I've scanned that in. You can find it in the photo gallery.


14 March 2007

One day old and I've made a change to the colour scheme already! I've also started a Message Board.

Thanks to Anna for sending the following Felicity links.

Here's a link to a Servants press kit in pdf format. It includes a page on Felicity.

Also at the BBC is a questionnaire at the Archers radio soap site. Also if you click here you can find pictures of Felicity under "Ambridge's rockiest romance", "Emma and Wills baby" and one nice pic in "Farewell Pebble Mill". So nice here it is!

Anna also tells me that there was a link to this site on the AustenBlog. On the evening I started the page! Good lord, someone was on the ball!


13 March 2007

I first noticed Felicity in a BBC series called Servants back in 2003 and I toyed with the idea of doing a little webpage about her. Shortly she will be appearing in ITV's new adaptation of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey and it's sort of kickstarted things. Hopefully I'll find more material about her in the coming weeks.

By the way, Northanger Abbey is on ITV on Sunday 25 March and the DVD is out the next day!

To start with here are a few scans I have done from the current issue of Arena magazine and the new Radio Times.
