Howards End is a four-part miniseries, adapting the 1910 novel by EM Forster of the same name. Considered to be Forster’s best novel, Howards End is a romance set against the backdrop of England’s class divisions at the turn of the century. The drama stars Hayley Atwell, a hugely talented actress, and has been adapted by Kenneth Lonergan, a hugely talented writer – and it’s been adapted from the most seminal work of a hugely talented author. It’s a recipe for success, and definitely worth a watch if you enjoy period dramas.

I did watch this, and I enjoyed it, but… well, I ended up missing the third episode for some reason or another, and it took me a while to realise I’d missed it – so I didn’t really make the effort to seek it out, figuring that I wasn’t really engaging with it anyway. I don’t know, I might go back to it sometime – probably read the novel first though.
