Bronteana in the News

My Cornish correspondent, Aidan Brack, has just informed me that Bronteana has been voted 29th in a BBC poll for Best Drama Website of 2006! (The homepage for Jane Eyre 2006 came in 6th). I am very grateful to my readers for this totally unexpected honour. Bronteana came in just after 24, and ahead of Emmerdale, Judge John Deed, The Line of Beauty, Monarch of the Glen, New Tricks, Outpost Gallifrey, Sea of Souls, Silent Witness, and Waterloo Road.

Since coming to Halifax, I have not had the time to keep up to date on how Bronteana is being recieved, but it did come to my attention that the mirror blog I constructed on Wordpress has been a featured site for quite some time! The site is meant only to be a backup archive, but it is still very gratifying to know that my work is appreciated by the staff at Wordpress.

To all of my readers, thank you for your continued support!

ETA: While we're at it, Jane Eyre 2006 has won a top spot in all of the other categories: the production placed 3rd as overal most popular drama, Ruth Wilson has placed 2nd for best actress, Toby Stephens has placed 3rd for best actor, and the reunion of Jane and Rochester placed 2nd for favourite moment.

I, for one, love your blog, and read it almost daily - I've loved Jane Eyre since I was 14 or 15 (I'm going to be 50 in May) - and I've really enjoyed all your information, hard work, scholarship - and your love of the sisters and their work.

Bless you, and keep on, my dear.

Congratulations, well deserved! Should be placed much higher in my opinion!

I loved Jane Eyre ever since I read it, and although have watched the earlier movies, I must say I love the BBC's version best, possibly because of Toby. Living in Malaysia, we never got Jane Eyre on tv, and looking for pictures and articles were so very hard, until I came across your blog! A little late perhaps but thank you so much for the many pictures and articles about the movie!

Thank you. We have had a lot of fun bantering too, I think!

I'm delighted either way. Although my mother is quite typically parental: '29th out of how many?' ;)

I'm glad to be of help! I know how frustrating it can be to have information scattered all over the internet. Thankfully, my readers were of great help by scanning magazine articles or sending recordings of interviews for us.

I for one love your blog, especially the illustrated pages of Jane Eyre. I just had to download and print them. Now what I would love to have is a beautifully bound illustrated book of Jane Eyre. I know that you have been busy, but keep up the good work!
