Jane Eyre 9.00pm BBC1
Mr Rochester's bed is on fire, though sadly not with passionate love for governess Jane. Not yet, anyway. But the erotic charge between the two is unmistakable in the second part of this splendid dramatisation of Charlotte Bronte's classic novel. Leads Toby Stephens and Ruth Wilson are just wonderful, casting knowing, sometimes playful glances at one another as they begin to fall in love. No-one actually uses the "L-word", which just makes it all the more sexy. Of course, there is a blot on the romantic horizon for Jane in the shape of ringleted, frothy bore Blanche Ingram (Christina Cole), but we all know that she's not woman enough for Mr R. Meanwhile, those noises from the attic grow louder and there's an appalling incident that requires Jane's sensible intervention.
THE INSIDE STORY
Among the many artistic issues to consider when making a classic period drama is that of horse manure. "It's a question of continuity," explains director Susanna White who, during the filming of Jane Eyre (9.00pm BBC1), was faced with numerous scenes involving horses (including Toby Stephens's mount). "It needs to appear in exactly the same place in every shot; you can't have piles appearing and disappearing. Finally, we decided to go down the no-manure route. Otherwise it would have meant having people permanently on hand with dustpan and shovel."
