I felt a real Wuthering Heights vibe when reading this - the sexual menace and the darkness were all there but slightly lacked the subtlety and depth of Emily Bronte's novel.

Would absolutely love the Beeb to do a Du Maurier season.[/quote]

I definitely got the same vibe. Although, it wasn't my favorite DuMaurier. Rebecca and My Cousin Rachel are her best in my opinion.

The Beeb? As in Justin Beiber? :)

In all seriousness I would love to see BBC redo some DuMaurier too.
