Does anyone know of any good non-smut RWAV fanfiction? I can't seem to find any.

Hurrah! I found a trailer on youtube!

And it actually looks REALLY good, or at least I think so. Yes, they're completely off with George and Lucy supposedly having it off here, there and everywhere, and George's accent is HORRIBLE when compared with Julian's, but it looks ok. We must hope. :)

So I was happily browsing the net for info on new RWAV (definitely on Sunday, by the way - 9pm, ITV), and I found the following couple of webbies:

http://www.itv.com/Drama/perioddrama/ARoomWithAView/default.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Room_with_a_View_%28television_series%29

Then I found this:
http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/organgrinder/2007/10/a_sexy_poignant_room_with_a_vi.html

And in particular (look away if you don't weant to be suprised for Sunday)(and those who are pure of heart) THIS:


"In A Room With A View he has introduced some new scenes - notably highlighting Reverend Beebe's hinted-at homosexuality by showing him trying to pick up two men in a back street in Florence.

Also, the heroine Lucy Honeychurch is shown jumping into a pond with her naked beau, George Emerson, though this idea was RDF producer Eileen Quinn's.

Then - of course - Lucy and Goerge are shown having sex in Italy. And - look away now Daily Mail readers - Lucy's naked breasts are clearly visible.

"Well, I can be cheeky", Davies admits."

And "This is not a chocolate box drama, it's much more realistic and stays true to Forster's values.

Beware though, it's still a tear-jerker.

Based on a postscript Forster wrote in 1958, imagining what might have happened to the characters, Davies has written a new ending.

I won't ruin it for you but it is probably Davies' most poignant addition to any of his adaptations to date. And will certainly get Forster fans talking."

Now, does anyone apart from me know what he means by that!? Because I've read the preface to my edition of RWAV, and I know what he's referring to... and I'm not happy with it!

I'm worried. I really am. This is getting worse by the moment. And I still haven't seen a trailer. :(

And for another fact, they can't spell George's name correctly. I mean, for heaven's sake!!!

November 4th. It's official, the dvd's supposed to be released on the 5th, and it says on some website I found somewhere (?) that it would be aired on the 4th. Amazon have released another picture of the front cover for the dvd, and they're smiling at each other, so I'm very happy....

Cover no. 2Collapse )

Anyone else intending to watch it apart from me then?

Just thought I'd let you know about the new Room with a View that will be airing in November on ITV1 - not got an exact date yet, but will update when I know! We do, however, have a picture of the front cover (courtesy of Amazon) so we'll have to go by that for the moment....

Not as hot as Julian, but..Collapse )

Hello and welcome to Manly Arms!!

If you love Room with a View or George Emerson, you will be happy here.

Trust me.

Feel free to post graphics, fanfic, fan art, general squeeness - whatever! Just relax and enjoy yourself!

So, imagine you're sat in Windy Corner, (obligatory removal of bone from your chair that Freddy left there ealier is neccessary), bellow out the door to Minnie that you don't want to play tennis, ignore Cecil, make Mr Beebe a pot of tea, and settle into the wonderful world of George....

Oh yeah, if someone else other than me could join, then that would be nice too!
