] I'm glad you mentioned "running to town in the horse chestnut season." Although I remember Darcy's statement in the A&E video, I could not find it in the P/P book I don't know why it, along with Mrs. Gardiner's: "on the green near the smithy's," embarrasses me, but it does. I always fast-forward past that little bit of dialogue in the video. Few parts of the screenplay do that to me.
I don't particularly like it because it reminds me of that poem, "Under the spreading chestnut tree, the village smithy ***** stands." (I forget the adverb, and the rest of the poem, and the author--maybe Longfellow?) :-( But perhaps that was meant to be like that--as a sort of pun on Andrew Davies' side.
