Well done

This dramatized version differentiates the characters well, and they don't sound incongruous. The only thing is, I always liked the Fanny/Edmund pairing, and this version had me rooting for Henry! It's just a time period thing - back in the day if you blotted your character you had destroyed your life; today we feel that a person can change their life with the right motivation.
