I love GE, but wish it wasn’t up against Grace. Honestly - last night there was a dire tv offering and tonight will involve juggling. We are away, and don’t have wifi, so I can’t record anything or use players. I will have to watch half of Grace, then GE, then go to ITV+1 for the second half of Grace.
I think GE is done so often because it is almost the perfect novel. It is so well-plotted, the characters are believable and the themes universal. There will always be people who haven’t read it - young people who haven’t had time yet, for a start, and those who know the plot can watch for the screenplay and differences in the adaptation. I’m looking forward to it.
