What are some reviews on Sanditon?

Indiewire called the origin story a “mixed bag”. “Sanditon is like ‘Downton Abbey,’ or any other British period drama that aims to remind audiences what they loved about Austen’s world, while adding just enough of a twist to hook modern viewers. The best part is, however, seeing the process behind the invention.”

The Verge wrote that Sanditon is “too reactionary” and compared Crouch’s take on the novel to his previous novel “Dark Matter”. Sanditon, with its references to the original story and its use of a period setting is “like reading a fanfiction from the future, which is not as interesting as it sounds.”

Buzzfeed’s critic found Sanditon to be “not bad, actually”, but added that he would have liked more “slapstick”. Northumberland News praised the series and called in a “well shot” drama, with a mixture of teen angst and family drama.
