Answers to Cranford Spinsters

1. Imelda Staunton (Miss Pole) also played Mrs. Palmer opposite Hugh Laurie's Mr. Palmer in Sense and Sensibility. She is married to Jim Carter, who played Captain Brown.

2. Francesca Annis (Lady Ludlow) and Ralph Fiennes (Wuthering Heights 1992, English Patient) were an item for 11 years.

3. Julia McKenzie (Mrs. Forrester) will play Mrs. Marple for ITV

4. Leslie Manville (Mrs. Rose). Black and white photo at right - she was married to Gary Oldman.

5. Emma Fielding. As Miss Galindo, she stood next to Sir Charles Maulver (Greg Wise) at Lady Ludlow's annual picnic. (Delicious irony.)

6. Judi Dench (Click on link to see her as Queen Tatiana in A Midsummer Night's Dream in 1968 wearing little but green paint.)

7. Eileen Atkins (Miss Jenkyns). Doesn't she look simply stunning at 73?
