Such a good series!!! I remember discovering it by accident back when it originally premiered on PBS years ago, and despite being in the middle of the series and having to work incredibly hard to figure things out mid-stream, I was hooked. When the final episode aired I was very sick (could hardly keep my eyes open), but I couldn't not see how it ended!

That there will probably be other batches after this (it's so LONG!), but I wanted at least to get these ones up and public for all to share. ;)

As always, never alter my graphics, comment, credit, and enjoy!

I've never had the chance to watch it but these icons are very beautiful! When I get a new job, I'll be sure to buy this series!

Does a local library have it? It can be quite sad in parts (it's Dickens!), but it's very very good. I'd definitely recommend it to you once you're feeling better! ♥

These are so beautiful...

Gorgeous! This makes me want to rewatch the miniseries and reread the book.

Ooo, yay! Just in time for me to finish up the book and watch the series! I am very teased by your icons!

Ooooh perfect timing then! ;D Do let me know what you think once you've watched it!

That is a good series. I started watching it in the middle of it when it was on PBS. I ended up renting it from Netflix so I could see the whole thing. My favorite character is Lady Dedlock. She's such a pathetic, melancholy creature. I like Esther, too. I think it was the way she turned down Guppy. ;-) It wasn't mean, but it was honest. I've got the book, now if only I get around to reading it....

Yeah, I got it from a library to finish it eventually.

I liked Lady Dedlock, too! Gillian Anderson was so amazingly good in that role, and so regal. You can't help but be fascinated by her.

Esther's practically a saint! And poor Mr. Guppy, lol! He needed to take a hint, but at least he didn't get all miffed and peevish once she refused him.

I've got the book, as well, but it's not at the top of my reading list. ;)

Yes! They casted her well. It's hard to see Lady Dedlock being played by anyone but Gillian Anderson.

I agree about Esther. She seemed wise beyond her years. And hey, you have to give Guppy credit for bowing out when she refused him. Though wasn't awkward the next time they saw each other? He was gentleman in the sense of knowing that he had to bow out. He knew where the line was....Poor Mr. Guppy, indeed. They were hardly a match.

I thought everyone was cast well!!

Yeah, she seemed to border on the saintly, and I suspect some of her more "spritely" moments were changes added in by Davies in an attempt to make her more appealing to a modern audience. Or at least, that's what they usually do...

Not a good match even by the largest stretch of imagination, I'm afraid!

Lovely batch! 20 stands out the most for me. I love butterflies and just the way the picture blends so well with coloring and textures.

Thank you! I think I could have made a hundred icons of Lady Dedlock, but that would bore people real fast, lol!

And ahhhhh your icon!!! I need to find some good caps of that movie!!

My favourites (among others...) are 4,15.30 and 39.
