I don't know why this is happening (I couldn't get it to enlarge either- so something might be wrong with blogger again). If you can't get it to enlarge then just use this link:

Interview with Sandy Welch

WHAT is all this about science and genetics? It appears we will get some Darwin along the line. Perhaps St John will turn out to be a dastardly creationist. ;-)

Glad she is against a ‘pantomime’ Rochester. But really, he is an artist, not a scientist. He plays the piano and sings and quotes Shakespeare and the Arabian Nights. That’s why we love him – he is so orfully cultured. Biology geeks are not sexy.

Welch says that it was "amazing" that Stephens and Wilson found complexity in the dialogue, and I agree. I think the screenplay is the weakest part of episode 1. The acting was done well (Adele was kind of annoying), but the script left a lot to be desired.

to liz:

I agree. I thought about that as I watched it the third time. I'm just not seeing the appeal of this geeky Rochester. I can't help but think, also, that he can't be that tortured if he can forget all of his troubles simply by petting some newts.

(It still seems so strange that I just said this... Newts in Jane Eyre?)

to anonymous:

I think you're right. I liked the dialogue in the first interview but most of it was dull and sometimes ridiculous and out of sync with the action and atmosphere.
