What are some reviews on Sanditon?

“Sanditon is a superb piece of period drama television, drawing on Jane Austen’s unfinished novel and bringing it to life in a way that feels both fitting and new.” – “The Independent”

“Sanditon looks lush and atmospheric, with plenty of period detail and attractive uniforms. It will be interesting to see how this version compares to the last time that the novel was adapted for TV, in a 1990s version with Richard E Grant as Denham. The pieces of the jigsaw are all in place. This is a period drama with a wealth of characters and an intriguing plot full of family intrigue and social climbing.
