Davies defends Bleak House

Guild member Andrew Davies has defended his adaptation of Dickens's Bleak House after an attack from Philip Hensher (who said, basically, why bother with an adaptation when you can read the novel.) The Guardian has the full story, and lots of comment.

Meanwhile Davies continues his dominance in the world of classic adaptations. As BBC News reports, he will be writing at least one of ITV's upcoming Jane Austen dramas as well as a BBC version of Sense and Sensibility.
