While Colin Firth's version went through the motions of the book, and therefore might be considered closer, I felt that it lacked feeling and even understanding of the characters. I hated the damp scene's and some of it just made me cringe.
I prefer the David Rintoul, Elizabeth Garvey version personally, I felt they captured the spirit of the book and while I know it also has the odd dodgy moment, overall I find the production much better.
